Dog owners and their dogs are encouraged to come to Santa Barbara County Animal Services’ special Project PetSafe Outreach Clinic on Saturday, June 19, 2010, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., at the Goleta Valley Community Center, front lawn area, 5679 Hollister Avenue, in Goleta.
The following will be available at the Project PetSafe Clinic:
• Free six month dog licenses for dogs that have never been licensed
• Dog license renewals – all late fees will be waived
• Affordable vaccinations including rabies , DHPP and bordatella
• Microchipping $20
• Information about affordable spay and neuter services
All dogs must be on leash. No appointments needed.
A current rabies certificate and written proof that the dog is spayed or neutered (if applicable) are required to obtain a dog license.
Many dog owners do not realize that state and local laws require all dogs over 4 months to be licensed and wearing the tag. According to Jan Glick, Director of Santa Barbara County Animal Services, “A license is your pet’s ticket home. When our Animal Services Officers rescue a pet wearing a license we are able to take it directly home to its family. Wearing a license tells everyone that your pet has an owner who wants to keep their pet safe.”
Your pet’s license is their ticket home. Get your dog vaccinated, licensed, and microchipped on Saturday, June 19, 2010.
