(SALEM, Ore.) - Marion County Dog Services will host a Dog License Amnesty event offering amnesty on late fees and license violations, as well as a low cost vaccination clinic from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 18th at the Sublimity Fire Station (115 NW Parker). Santiam Equine Veterinary Clinic will partner with dog services and provide low-cost vaccinations for dogs.

FREE rabies vaccinations will be offered to the first 250 who also purchase a second preventative vaccine. Rabies vaccinations without the second vaccine are $10, and vaccinations for DHPP and Bordatella are also being offered for $10 each. "These events have proven to be very popular with the public," said Sonya Pulvers, office manager at Marion County Dog Shelter.

"They offer a great opportunity for dog owners to license their dogs, which will help their dogs get home if they're lost, and to also get low cost vaccinations to keep their dogs healthy." Licenses are $17 a year for neutered or spayed dogs and $32 for unaltered dogs.

The license fee for spayed or neutered dogs owned by seniors 65 or older is $5.

Proof of neutering or spaying must be provided to receive the reduced fee or senior discount. Multi-year licenses are also available. Please bring a check or exact change. Dogs must be on leashes or in carriers. All owners and keepers of dogs in Marion County are required to purchase a license when a dog reaches six months of age.

Licenses are also required within 30 days of becoming a dog owner or moving into Marion County. For more information please call (503) 588-5233.
