Earlier this week the Kent Police Department held it’s monthly Neighborhood Watch meeting — and this month’s topic was animal control. You’d be surprised how many calls we get related to nuissance animals, ground hogs, foxes, bats, feral cats, stray dogs, and yes, even road kill.
The City has one employee in the Police Department that serves as Kent’s animal control officer (he also doubles as our parking enforcement officer but that’s a story for another day). We’re also tied in to Portage County animal control programs and it turns out that the Portage County Dog Warden has announced a reduced cost rabies clinic for Saturday, September 25th from 9 to 11 am, at 8120 Infirmary Road in Ravenna.
The Aurora and Mantua Veterinary Clinics have partnered with the Portage County Dog Warden to sponsor this clinic. For just $10 (cash or check only) you can have your dog, cat or ferret (pets must be at least 4 months old) vaccinated. No appointments are necessary.
It’s a great price to keep your pet, and your family, safe from this deadly viral infection.
