There will be a rabies clinic at Appleton Fire Department on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 1 to 3 p.m. Dogs and cats welcome. The cost is $12 per shot, cash or check only. Please bring past rabies shot records. All dogs must be on a leash, and cats need to be in some type of carrier. It’s also a good time to license your dog! It costs $6 for spayed/neutered dogs, and $11 for others. If you wait until after Feb. 1 to license your dog, there will be a $25 late fee! For more information or questions, call the town office at 785-4722.
