NORMAN — The Norman Animal Welfare will host a vaccination, micro-chip and pet license clinic next month.

The clinic will be from noon to 4 p.m. Feb. 9 at the Norman Animal Welfare facility, 3428 S. Jenkins Ave. Only cash will be accepted at the clinic.

All residents of the city of Norman are required by law (3-209a) to license their pets (dogs and cats) annually. Pet licenses are valid from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31 of each year.

Adherence to the city pet license requirements has helped reunite owners with their pets and ensure animals remain current on their rabies vaccinations, which is required by the State of Oklahoma.

“City pet licenses are your pet’s ticket home,” stated a Norman Animal Welfare release. “If your pet is found and is displaying a CPL, Animal Welfare employees are able to return your pet and not have to take it to the shelter.”

Proof of current rabies vaccination in the form of a rabies certificate — including vaccination expiration date, rabies tag number and animals spay or neuter status — is required in order to purchase a city pet license.

Licenses cost $16 for unaltered pets and $8 for altered pets. Senior citizens, age 65 and up, will receive a 50 percent discount.

Vaccinations that will be available at the clinic include:

· Rabies vaccinations — $5 for one year or $10 for three years. To receive a three-year vaccine, owners must show proof of having prior one-year rabies vaccination, including a rabies tag or certificate.

· Cough vaccination — $15

· Distemper/Parvo vaccination — $20

· Feline Distemper vaccination — $20

· Feline Leukemia vaccination — $20

· Ferret Distemper vaccination — $20

Other services that will be available at the clinic include:

· Micro-chip — $25

· Physical exams with report card — $25

· Deworming — $5
