SPCA Cincinnati: Buy dog license, get free rabies shot

Time is running out to buy your 2010 Hamilton County Dog license! According to Ohio law, every dog over the age of three months must have a license by January 31 of every year. Dog owners who fail to purchase a license for their dog by January 31, 2010 are subject to a fine.

A great opportunity to get a license, as well as other services for your pet, will be during SPCA Cincinnati’s Pet ID Day, Sunday, January 31, noon to 4:00 p.m. at the SPCA Cincinnati Humane Center, 11900 Conrey Road, Sharonville.

Licenses are $19.75 each. A Hamilton County dog license not only ids your pet, but is also their ticket home if they get lost or loose.

SPCA Cincinnati will also offer a free rabies shot for your dog with the purchase of a Hamilton County dog license. This offer is good ONLY during Pet ID Day on January 31 and ONLY at SPCA Cincinnati’s Sharonville location.

Rabies shots are also free for cats, but SPCA Cincinnati is asking for a small donation of your choice as cats are not required to have a license.

Discounted microchip implantations will also be available. Microchipping and registration for one cat or dog is $15, a savings of around $60. With a small microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) implanted under the skin, a pet can be traced back to its owner if found and turned in to an animal shelter, including SPCA Cincinnati.
