Time for dog and cat owners to get pet licenses for 2018
Grand Island, Neb.— The City of Grand Island reminds all dog and cat owners residing within the city of Grand Island that pet licenses are now available for the 2018 year.
The licenses can be purchased at local veterinary clinics, the Central Nebraska Humane Society, or the Utility Customer Service Center. The Humane Society is located at 1312 Sky Park Road and is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m. The Utility Customer Service Center is located at 1306 W. Third St. and has the business hours of Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The license fee for a pet that is spayed or neutered is $16 per pet and $41 for pets not spayed or neutered. The licenses are valid from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31 of each year. After Jan. 31 a $10 late fee is added per animal. Owners will receive a receipt as proof of license and a metal tag for each pet licensed which should be attached to the pet’s collar. If the tag is lost another one can be purchased for $5.
To be eligible to purchase a pet license the pet must be current on its rabies vaccination. The State of Nebraska requires all dogs and cats over six months of age have this vaccination, which is available at local veterinary clinics.
