Dog Licenses, Microchips, Rabies Vaccinations and Free Gifts at Sunday Event
Pet owners are encouraged to have their animals microchipped, vaccinated and licensed this Sunday, March 13 from 12-2 p.m. at the County Department of Animal Service’s San Diego shelter, 5480 Gaines Street. Pet owners who take advantage of the services will receive a variety of free pet gifts.
“Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day early and give your pets a lucky charm by having them microchipped,” said Dawn Danielson, Director of County Animal Services. “The chance of a lost pet being reunited with an owner is increased if the pet is microchipped.”
Due to a seasonal influx of kittens in the County's three animal shelters, the County Department of Animal Services will waive all adoption fees, beginning today, June 1 through September 4, for cats six months and older. Only two cats per person can be adopted.
"Our three County shelters are really packed right now and we don't want to compromise the health of the cats and kittens by holding more animals then we can properly care for," said Dawn Danielson, Director of the Department of Animal Services.
