SELMA – Pet owners can take advantage of a rabies and microchipping clinic offered by the city of Selma and Second Chance Animal Shelter.

The clinic is 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 17, at the Second Chance Animal Shelter at 2831 W. Front St. The cost for a rabies vaccination is $10. Microchipping is $15 per chip.

Dog licenses are required by the city of Selma and cost $20 per animal. These may be purchased during the clinic. To receive a dog license for 2018, a pet owner must present a current rabies certificate that is valid through Dec. 31, 2018. If the pets being licensed are spayed or neutered, then licenses cost $10 per animal. Pet owners must present documentation regarding a pet’s spay or neuter when purchasing the license. Senior citizens older than 62 receive a 50 percent discount on their dog license fees.  

A 50 percent late fee will be charged for any dog licensed after March 31.

If you have questions, contact the city of Selma Finance Department at 891-2205. Make checks payable to the City of Selma.  

If your pet does not need a rabies vaccination, it is not necessary to bring your dog to this clinic. Do bring their current rabies certificate to purchase the dog license.
