Get your pet vaccinated and licensed!
The annual Dog and Cat Clinic will be held at the Neligh City Hall Garage on Thursday, April 23 from 3 to 5 p.m.
Dr. Stacy Charf from the Antelope County Vet Clinic will offer rabies shots for dogs and cats.
"After dogs receive their rabies shot, they can come into the city office and license their dog all at the same time," City Clerk Dana Klabenes said. She said the cost of Neligh's dog licenses doubles in price after May 1. Here is more information on dog licensing requirements in Neligh:
