Rabies and microchip clinic offered

The Morgan County Animal Control and River Valley Veterinarian, Dr. Jason Lott have teamed up to provide discounted rabies vaccinations, microchips and 2014 licensing.
Many people don’t realize that even out here in the country, there are ordinances that mandate that your dog must be licensed.  This licensure makes it easy for the county to make sure that all dogs are current on their rabies vaccines.  Having every dog in the county vaccinated for rabies helps ensure public safety on a broad scale.
This year a new microchip service is being offered as an alternative to traditional licensing.  “My end goal is to get these animals home safely.  I am not a ‘dog catcher’ in the traditional sense.  I love nothing more than to see a pet reunited with their family,” said Animal Control Officer Paula Harrington.  “I see a lot of animals missing tags because they weren’t put back on after a bath, this help alleviate such oversights.”
The clinic will take place in the Morgan County building at 48 W. Young Street on Saturday, Jan. 18 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Please bring your animals on a leash or in a carrier.
