Louisville – Those who take advantage of the FAT Trolley Hop this coming Friday, October 26th may notice something going on at Franck and Frankfort Avenue. The corner will be the location of a S.P.O.T. Clinic sponsored by Councilwoman Tina Ward-Pugh (D-9).
“Metro Animal Services has developed a low cost way to help pet owners protect their pet and improve the chances of finding an animal if it becomes lost,” says Ward-Pugh. “But most importantly, S.P.O.T. clinics help everyone be responsible for the family pet and the safety of our communities.”
The S.P.O.T Clinic will be held from 4:00pm to 8:00pm at Franck and Frankfort Avenue. 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
The Councilwoman has long been supportive of programs that help keep the public safe while at the same time watch out for the welfare of pets. S.P.O.T. stands for Stop Pet Overpopulation Today. The mobile clinic brings these services to locations throughout Metro Louisville.
“It is my hope that many will take advantage of this clinic. Though only service animals are allowed on trolleys, you might consider taking your pet back home and then coming back to find your fun on Frankfort,” says Ward-Pugh.
