In a continuing effort to serve all areas of Arvada, Colorado, the Arvada Police Animal Management Unit will host its next pet licensing clinic at the Lake Arbor Community Station, 8110 Vance Drive, on July 23, 2016. Animal Management Officers will be available between 2pm and 4pm.
In addition to licensing, Clear Creek Veterinary Hospital will be at all three clinics to do low cost vaccinations for those pets that need them. Rabies, bordetella, leptospirosis, influenza, Lyme and distemper vaccinations for dogs will be available at $15 each. For cats, rabies, feline leukemia, and FVRCP vaccinations will be available, also $15 each. Clear Creek Veterinary will also have microchips available for $30 each.
Arvada residents will need to bring their pet’s rabies vaccination certificate (available from your veterinarian) to verify vaccinations. Those wanting to complete the licensing form prior to arrival may download the form at www.petdata.com/assets/pdf/FAS_application.pdf.
Participants do not need to bring their pet, but can if they would like. Animal Management Officers will be available to answer questions and there will snacks and goodies for both two-legged and four-legged friends.
The cost for licensing a pet is $20, whether the animal is intact or spayed/neutered. Residents may also renew their yearly registration and get replacement tags if they have lost one. For more information, please call Animal Management at 720.898.6850.
