Animal Services Offering Low-Cost Pet Services for $24
A low-cost clinic is offering pet services such as microchip, rabies vaccines and license for only $24.
Animal Services, a division of the Environmental Services Department (ESD), is proud to offer low cost pet services scheduled for this Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015.
Due to the success of recent low cost clinics, Animal Services has decided to hold a weekday event to better serve those residents who were unable to attend previous clinics that were held on Sunday mornings.
The goal of the clinic is to increase licensing by having all municipal pet ownership requirements available at one time. In order to obtain a license, an owner must have their pet micro-chipped and must also show a current rabies vaccine. For this event only, the shelter will offer all three services (microchip, rabies vaccine and license) for only $24.
City code requires that all pets be licensed, vaccinated and micro-chipped.The services will be available on a first come, first served basis; the first 150 animals will be served. Exact cash or check will be accepted and owners are asked that dogs be on a leash and have cats contained. Arrive early to avoid extended wait times. It is anticipated that pet owners will begin to form a line two hours prior to the 6 a.m. start time.
The event will be held from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Animal Services Clinic located at 9060 Socorro Road. For more information, contact the Animal Services Shelter at (915) 842-1000.
