Edgerton residents with pets need to update licenses by the end of the month. A current rabies vaccination is required.
For those who can’t make their usual veterinarian appointments can be made at the low-cost animal vaccine clinic which returns to Edgerton City Hall in 2021 on March 20 from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Residents must sign up for a 15 minute timeslot to have their pets vaccinated. Reservations are accepted through petclinic.eventbrite.com or by calling city hall at 913.893.6231. Up to four pets are allowed per resident, per appointment.
The clinic will offer low cost rabies and distemper vaccines, as well as microchips.
Payment is required at time of service: cash or check only. Costs are:
Rabies Vaccine: $10
Distemper Vaccine: $15
Microchip: $20
Pet licenses: $5 each for spayed and neutered dogs and cats $25 each for intact animals.
Licenses are free for those age 60 and older.
This event is for Edgerton residents only. All animals six months of age or older must be registered by March 31 to avoid a $25 penalty.
“If your pets get loose, pet licenses help Edgerton’s Animal Control quickly identify your pet and get them back home safely. Registration requires a current rabies vaccination,” said Charlie Lydon, animal control officer. “Vaccinating your pets for rabies not only protects them from a fatal and preventable disease, it also helps ensure public safety because rabies is transmittable to humans.”
