ADELANTO – City of Adelanto officials said that with the help of VCA Mesa Animal Hospital and the Victor Valley Animal Protective League close to 120 residents attended the Dog License and Vaccination Clinics on Saturday, March 18th.
“It’s a great program and a great benefit for the community and I just wish more people would take advantage of it,” said Community Safety Manager Steven Peltier. During the three-hour event, 54 dog licenses were issued. “Each clinic we hold is successful and attendance at Saturday’s event was approximately 16% higher than the average for 2016,” added Peltier.
The clinics offer low-cost vaccinations, by VCA Mesa Animal Hospital and the city issued Dog licenses for a nominal fee. The first 50 pets were offered free microchips by the Victor Valley Animal Protective League (VVAPL) and any additional microchips were offered at only $10 per pet. “It’s important for pet owners to ensure that their animals are licensed and vaccinated for the protection and safety of pets and owners throughout the city,” said Mayor Rich Kerr. “It’s good to see the spirit of cooperation between our Animal Control Department, VCA Animal Hospital, and VVAPL, each working to serve our residents,” he added.
The next License and Vaccination Clinic is scheduled for June 17th from 9:00 A.m. until 12:00 p.m. “This is one of those few times where the entire experience is positive, unlike some of the calls we address on a daily basis,” said Peltier. “During the clinic I get to go out and mingle with the animals and their owners for the day; it’s great to see the different breeds we have in town and see their owners faces light up when someone asks about their furry companion.”
