Services that are offered by the city animal services

Unlike the county animal service, it ought to be noted that city services do not deal with things like capturing wildlife or transportation of the same. It is, therefore, vital for us to understand the kinds of services that they provide.

It should also be noted that Madison city animal services respond to calls concerning stray dogs, dead animals and barking dogs. So as to report any of the above, all you need to do is acquire the number of the service and call them at any time. They will usually respond in a couple of hours and your problem will be taken care of.

City services are also in charge of dog licenses. Most cities in the United States require that dogs have licenses, and they, therefore, provide application forms for the same. For an application form, you can either visit their offices or website. You should then fill in the form and provide all necessary attachments. The application will typically take only weeks to process, and you will be contacted if the license is ready or in case of anything else.

Some Madison city services also offer low cost pet vaccinations at their offices. They usually have clinics either at the main office or at different branches where you can go and get your dog vaccinated. Locations of these free clinics are most likely listed on their notice board or website. The best place for finding information about city animal services is the internet, since most of their work and service will be clearly shown.

Certain city services have also been known to offer free spaying and neutering services to their Wisconsin residents. In most cases, these cities team up with non-profit organizations that offer such services, and make certain that the services are brought closer to their residents. All that you might be required to do is complete a voucher application and then send it either in person, by mail or online to the city services. The voucher can be picked from the reception of the city services, and you will not require paying for the same. In most cases, you be required to fill in a different application form for each animal that you own. So it is better if you pick as many forms as probable to avoid having to go back to pick another form.

For animals that have been impounded to the city services shelter, owners are free to claim for them. However, they will be mandated to pay a fee for their release, which is applicable regardless of whether the animal is dead or alive. The fee to be paid, will depend on the number of days it has been kept there, and if that was the first time it was impounded. Therefore, the more times the animal has been impounded, the more expensive the fee for its release. Some of the fees include replacement tag fee, puppy license, late penalty fee, spaying or neutering fee and regular license fee among others.
