KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Spay & Neuter Kansas City, in a partnership with city officials, plans to hold a free pet vaccination and microchipping clinic during the “Night Out Against Crime” event.

The free pet vaccinations and clinic will take place from 4 – 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 2, at the Spring Valley Park, 27th Street and Woodland Avenue.

Patrick Egberuare, manager of the Animal Health and Public Safety Division, said in a press release that vaccinating your pets will help them stay healthy and rabies-free.

“Pets that are licensed and microchipped can easily be united with their owners,” Egberuare said.” So often, the city’s animal shelter takes in animals that are owned pets, but without a license tag and microchip, we cannot contact the owner.”

Rabies vaccinations and microchipping will be free; however, pet owners will be required to buy a city license for each participating pet at the cost of $10. Pet owners can also purchase the $20 bundle package, which includes rabies vaccination, city license, microchip, brodetella and Da2PP or FVRCP vaccination.

This offer is open to all Kansas City, Mo., pet owners who are not current on rabies and pet licensing. All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier. For more information, please contact Patrick Egberuare in the Animal Health and Public Safety Division of the Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department at 816-513-9803 or Michelle Rivera, Spay & Neuter Kansas City , at 816-353-0940.
