Louisville, KY- Councilman Robin Engel (District 22) and The Louisville Metro Animal Services’ S.P.O.T. (Stop Pet Overpopulation Today) mobile unit will set-up for a rabies, license and microchip clinic on Monday, October 4, from 3:00p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The clinic will be held at The Fern Creek Community Center, 6104 Bardstown Road.
Metro Animal Services’ staff veterinarian will administer rabies vaccines, implant microchips at discounted prices and issue licenses on a first-come, first-serve basis. The one-year rabies and licensing packages will cost $13.50 for seniors (for up to two altered pets), $17.50 for owners of altered pets and $58.50 for residents with unaltered pets. The three-year rabies and licensing packages will cost $24.50 for seniors and $36.50 for owners of altered pets. Proof of spay/neuter must be provided for owners (if not provided previously) to receive a discount on their licenses. Microchips are available for $25.
Pets that are licensed are more likely to be returned to their owners if they are lost. If cats or dogs are brought to Louisville Metro Animal Services, they are processed quickly. Owners are located more efficiently and the redemption fees are discounted if an animal is properly licensed and wearing its tags.
