Low-cost vaccinations and microchip implants for animals will be offered during a special Norman Animal Welfare clinic from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the city's animal shelter, 3428 S Jenkins Ave.

The clinic also will serve as a means of educating the public on the importance of pet licensing, Police Chief Keith L. Humphrey said. Animal welfare is a division of the police department.

Norman residents are required by law to license their dogs and cats annually, Humphrey said. Pet licenses are valid from Jan. 1 through Dec. 31 each year. The cost is $16 for unaltered pets and $8 for altered animals.

The licenses provide a way for animal welfare employees to return a lost pet to its owner without taking the animal to the shelter, Humphrey said.

At the clinic, one-year rabies vaccinations will be offered for $5. A three-year rabies shot will be available for $10. Implants of microchips that aid in getting pets returned to their rightful owners will be offered for $25.

Pet owners can purchase pet licenses at the clinic. Proof of a current rabies vaccination is required before a pet can be licensed, the police chief said.

More than 200 people attended the last clinic offered by the shelter, Humphrey said.
