Part of being a great man, a gentleman, is being responsible. That pertains to yourself, family, and work but also to being the companion of a pet. Being a responsible companion means caring for their health and well-being (which includes the basic vaccinations), but it also includes licensing them. It happens to be the law, one that may well be one of the most-ignored ones, just as registering your vehicle or other permits - but more importantly it also helps get them back if lost. You might have them microchipped and have a personal tag, but using every means possible to make sure they are accounted for is always a good idea.
For some the cost is prohibitive, so to help resolve any impediments to those with lower incomes caring for their pets, (MADACC) will be hosting their annual low cost vaccination and micro-chipping clinic on March 26th between 10 am and 2 pm.
Rabies (which all pets should have) and Distemper/Parvo combo vaccines will be $5 each and micro-chips will be $15. All Milwaukee residents will be required to license their cat or dog to participate in the clinic. Licensing fees are $12 for an altered animal and $24 for an unaltered animal. All participants must pre-pay, walk-ins will not receive the discounted price.
To pre-pay, stop in at MADACC, located at 3839 West Burnham Street, before March 25th or email the form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Find the registration form here.
With these prices anyone and everyone with a pet should be able to do the right thing and get them vaccinated (at least for rabies) and get your license. If you want to add the other vaccines and a microchip (if your pet doesn't already have one) it's still a great deal.
