Low-cost vaccine, dog-licensing clinic offered

The Humane Society of Kent County and the Kent County Animal Shelter are teaming up to host a low-cost vaccination and dog licensing clinic, Saturday, Feb. 27 from noon to 3 p.m. at the Kent County Animal Shelter, 740 Fuller Ave. NE, Grand Rapids. At the clinic the Humane Society will offer rabies vaccinations for $15 and distemper vaccinations for $10. Since the clinic is designed for licensing, vaccinations are for dogs only and will only be offered to those purchasing or renewing their dog license. No appointment is necessary, but the Humane Society reserves the right to decline service to aggressive dogs.

All dogs in the county must have a license if four months of age or older, or within 30 days of acquiring a dog or moving into the area. The deadline for license purchase is March 1. Dog licenses are $11 for altered dogs and $24 for unaltered dogs. For senior owners (62+), licenses are $6 for altered dogs and $12 for unaltered dogs. All prices double after March 1, and owners are subject to citation and/or misdemeanor charges. All licenses require proof of current rabies vaccine and spay/neuter status. Licenses are also available at the Kent County Animal Shelter and the Humane Society of Kent County.

For more information on the dog licensing vaccination clinic, please call the Humane Society of Kent County at (616) 453-8900 extension 210, or the Kent County Animal Shelter at (616) 632-7300.
