Warmer temperatures and sunny skies are bringing more pet owners and their animals outdoors. It is also the right time of year to make sure any pet is healthy, properly vaccinated and licensed in Metro Louisville.
Two Metro Council members are working together to make that goal an easy one. Marianne Butler (D-15) and Dan Johnson (D-21) will host a S.P.O.T. Clinic this weekend at the Beechmont Baptist Church, 4574 South Third Street from 8:00am to 12:00pm.
“This clinic will offer a wide variety of services that are designed to make it easier for any pet owner to update a license or get the needed veterinary care for the pet,” says Butler. “Weekends may be an easier way for a pet owner to take care of this.”
“Councilwoman Butler and I are committed to making our neighborhoods safe,” says Johnson. “We need responsible pet owners to make sure they are doing their part and this clinic will help.”
The S.P.O.T (Stop Pet Overpopulation Today) clinic will feature the Metro Animal Services’ staff administering rabies vaccines, implanting microchips at discounted prices and issuing licenses on a first-come, first-serve basis.
There will also be various packages available for the cost of rabies and licensing. Proof of spay/neuter must be provided by owners registering their animals for the first time to receive a discount on their licenses.
