Bordetella (kennel cough)
If you do not have proof of all three vaccinations do not send your application at this time.
Only complete applications will be processed.
Upload a JPG, PDF, or PNG providing clear up to date vaccination records from a licensed veterinarian, on her/his letterhead. NOTE: If Titers were used to assess immune response, we need a copy of those results for our records. A Titers Test may be given in lieu of the Distemper/Parvo--but never acceptable for rabies (by state law). On the health documentation, a vet's notation might refer to "Parvovirus Antibody level." MHDRA requires more: we need the test results as a ratio such as Titers 1.5. or Titers 1:5, or 1:4.
2. Upload a photocopy of your dog’s (dogs’) New York City / other locality license as a PDF or JPG. If you do not have a dog license - you can obtain one HERE
3. Submit the annual dues payment of $60.00 per dog. All major credit cards are accepted. Seniors (62 or older) may pay $30.00 per dog. If your application is not accepted, your payment will be refunded.
NOTE: The membership year is from January 1 through December 31. If you are applying late in the year, dues are not prorated.
