Get your pet vaccinated and registered

October 24, 2018 - Mesquite, TX -  As Mesquite gears up for National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week in early November, the City’s shelter staff reminds pet owners to show appreciation towards their furry friends and get them registered and vaccinated.


Jeanne Saadi, Mesquite’s Manager of Animal Services, said, “All pet owners need to know that each dog and cat must be annually registered with the City once it reaches four months of age. Proof of a current rabies vaccination is required at the time of registration. Vaccinating pets against rabies and other diseases protects both your pet and your entire family.” She stated the fee to register a pet is just $5 for sterilized animals or only $15 for non-sterilized animals. And, she encouraged pet owners with questions to give shelter staff a call at 972-216-6283.


Saadi advised pet owners that some wildlife that carries disease, such as rabies, tends to be a little more active this time of year. Bats, coyotes, foxes, raccoons and skunks are known for having a higher risk for carrying viruses. They will usually avoid people, but encounters with pets can occur when the wildlife learns that neighborhoods are a source of food. She also reminded pet owners not to let their animals roam freely and for all residents not to put their trash out too early for pick-up. City Ordinance requires that trash and recyclable materials be placed for collection no earlier than 5:30 p.m. the day before a scheduled pickup.


Saadi added, “Proactive pet care with registration and vaccination as well as other actions by our residents can really help us do our job of maintaining a pet-friendly community.”
