Annual Rabies and Registration

Posted 3/23/2017

The Hesston Lions Club is hosting the annual Rabies and Registration clinic on Saturday, April 1 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Lions Club will be issuing City registration tags for dogs and cats.

Registration fees for spayed or neutered dogs and cats are $3 at the clinic.

Registration for non-spayed and non-neutered pets is $15

March 31 marks the end of the grace-period for City pet registration. Fees for registration increase $.50 per month registration has lapsed.

Rabies vaccinations will also be available at the clinic. A one-year vaccination is $16 for dogs and cats.  A two-year vaccination will be $22. 

In addition to rabies vaccinations Hesston Vet Clinic will be offering parvo vaccinations for $21; kennel cough vaccinations for $16; a feline booster shot for feline distemper for $21 and feline leukemia booster for $21.   The clinic will also be offering a check of intestinal worms for $8 and heartworm testing for $18.

Lions Club member Ken Schwanke said the annual clinic is a good way to serve all of Hesston’s residents, and provide opportunities to vaccinate pets at a discounted rate.

“This is one of the annual ways the Lions Club helps serve the community and is a reminder for residents with cats and dogs to get them tagged and registered within the City,” said Schwanke.

Pet owners needing to register their dogs and cats will need to arrive on time.

“It’s usually a pretty full four hours. The staff really gets coordinated in getting people in and out and paperwork done,” said Schwanke.

As word of the event has spread Schwanke said more and more area-wide residents have started taking advantage of the clinic.

“In recent years, there has been more than just Hesston folks taking advantage of it. I’m not sure how many veterinarians there are in the area,” he said.

For those attending the clinic, the line will be first-come, first-serve.

“Most years we have a line of people there. And if it’s a nice day, there may be a line around the corner,” said Schwanke.

Schwanke said the clinic is a benefit for pets and owners.

”It’s a good time to take advantage of getting pets current with shots, a quick look-over and get them registered,” he said.
