As part of the continuing effort to ensure more pets are licensed in Pinellas County, Animal Services will be mailing pet license renewal notices to pet owners prior to and after rabies vaccination expiration. Pet license expiration corresponds to the rabies vaccination expiration date.

In Pinellas County, pet owners are required by law to obtain a license for their cats and dogs. To obtain a pet license, each dog and cat over the age of 4 months must be vaccinated for rabies. Rabies vaccinations are due every year or every three years, depending on the vaccine administered.

LARGO - In early May, Chris Ankwiz got a late-night call from St. Petersburg police to assist with a murder scene in Lealman. Ankwiz, who is on-call 24/7, quickly showed up with a state-of-the-art ambulance to the relief of officers.

The Largo resident and co-owner of Vet Care Express of Pinellas, however, wasn’t there to aid the two people killed in the incident. Instead, he was there to help out a newly orphaned puppy.

“They were in a bind, they were able to call us and we did this one pro bono,” said Ankwiz, explaining that Animal Services won’t come out at that time of night. “But they were very stoked that we were able to come out and get this puppy and bring it to the nearest facility for evaluation and observation. And then, two days later, the dog got adopted.”

LARGO - A Paws Rescue Group volunteer happened to be at the right place at the right time recently when a puppy was thrown from a pickup onto the side of the road in Anona Heights in Largo.

Karen Altieri of Largo said she immediately stopped and the dazed dog ran into her arms, but there was no time to get the license-plate number of the truck.

“To have witnessed this horrific act by a human was shocking. I’ve read about these things before but to see it right in front of me was incredible,” Altieri said about the terrier-Italian greyhound mix who is nearly 1 year old and about 14 pounds.
