Marion County Dog Services is partnering with Willamette Humane Society to host a low cost vaccination clinic and dog licensing event on Saturday, July 28, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Willamette Humane Society, 4246 Turner Rd. SE, Salem. Dog Services will waive late fees and other license violations for dog owners who purchase a license at the event.
Community Services Director Tamra Goettsch said, "Dog licensing is an essential part of animal care in Marion County. In addition to helping return lost dogs back to their families, licensing ensures that dogs' vaccinations are up to date."
Rabies vaccinations are $10 and DHPP $15. Other services include $10 nail trims and $15 microchips. Veterinarian exam fee will be waived with purchase of a new, renewing, or verification of active license; otherwise the fee is $20.
Dog Licenses are $17 per year for neutered or spayed dogs and $32 for unaltered dogs. The license fee for spayed or neutered dogs owned by seniors 65 or older is $5 per year. Proof of neutering or spaying must be provided for the reduced license fee and proof of owner's age is needed to receive the senior discount. Multi-year licenses are also available. Dogs must be on leashes or in carriers. This is also an opportunity to verify and update owner contact information and order a replacement tag if needed.
Please bring cash or check only.
All owners and keepers of dogs in Marion County are required by law to purchase a license when a dog reaches six months of age. Licenses are also required within 30 days of becoming a dog owner or moving into Marion County with a dog.
