Louisville – The next S.P.O.T. Clinic is set for the Southwest Government Center sponsored by Councilman Rick Blackwell for pet owners in District 12. It’s great news for owners who would like one central location to take care of licensing, rabies and micro chipping.
“This S.P.O.T. Clinic is part of our commitment to keeping the community safe and helping pet owners obey the law,” says Blackwell.
S.P.O.T., which stands for Stop Pet Overpopulation Today, is the main mobile operation of Louisville Metro Animal Services. It provides veterinary services that include not only licensing but vaccinations.
“Licensing your pet is extremely important and it’s the law,” says Director of Louisville Metro Animal Services Justin Scally. “If you ever lose your pet, licensing can help you be reunited. License numbers provide LMAS staff with your contact information. If a Metro Animal Control Officer finds a roaming dog or cat with a license, the officer may be able to provide your pet a free ride home.”
The event will be held from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Southwest Government Center located at 7219 Dixie Highway. The following services will be provided:
License: $9.50 (altered pets)/ $50.50 (unaltered pets)*
Rabies: $8 (1 year)
*Senior citizens receive a discount on license fees
“If you are unable to get your pet taken care of during the week, this is an easy way to get the job done. LMAS will also be able to answer any questions if you are unsure about what your pet needs to have done,” says Blackwell.
