News Release: Veterinary Clinics in Manhattan now selling pet licenses

Posted on October 5, 2018 at 2:10 PM by Vivienne Uccello

(MANHATTAN, KS – October 4, 2018) Several local veterinarians have partnered with the City of Manhattan to offer one-stop shopping for rabies vaccinations and pet licensing. The City Commission recently adopted an ordinance that will allow veterinarians to sell licenses at their clinic and send that information back to the City. In addition, the animal’s rabies tag will now serve as the proof of license. No secondary tag will be needed.

“Instead of making a separate trip to City Hall for a pet license, now pets can get vaccinated and licensed at the same time. The goal is to get more people to comply with law and maintain public safety,” says Assistant City Manager Kiel Mangus.

Based on recommendations from area vets, the updated ordinance also raised the license fee for animals not spayed/neutered and lowered the fee for animals that are spayed/neutered.

The following veterinary offices will have licenses available for purchase:

  • Animal Doctor Westside                785-539-7922     3130 Anderson Avenue
  • Blue Hills Animal Hospital             785-537-8482     2313 Tuttle Creek Boulevard
  • Candlewood Veterinary Clinic     785-537-0537     3262 Kimball Avenue
  • Fur Family Animal Hospital           785-712-2332     530 McCall Rd Suite 100
  • Little Apple Veterinary Hospital  785-539-0191     909 Seth Child Road
  • Vet Health Center at KSU              785-532-5690     1800 Denison Avenue
