                          Annual vaccination against rabies is required per City Ordinance 95.03 Rabies Control. It is the duty of every person keeping a dog or cat over the age of three months to have that animal vaccinated against rabies.  All dogs and cats must be revaccinated annually.  Every veterinarian who vaccinates a dog or cat hereunder shall issue to the owner or keeper of the animal a numbered vaccination certificate and tag.  The certificate shall contain the name and address of the owner or keeper of the animal, a description of the animal vaccinated, the type of vaccine used, the date of vaccination, and the expiration date of the period of immunity.
                         No person, group of person, or business entity in the city may own, keep or harbor more than three dogs of three months of age or older, more than three cats of three months of age or older, or more than a total of five dogs and cats in any combination more than three months of age or older, without obtaining a kennel license per City Ordinance 95.07 Kennels.
