COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - The City of Covington will transfer all Animal Control Services to Kenton County effective, March 1, 2012.
Covington says the transfer of service will provide more service to the people in Covington by offering extended hours of operation and providing additional staff resources through the Kenton County Animal Control Department.
"This is a win-win situation for Kenton County and the City of Covington.", said City Manager Larry Klein. "It will provide additional hours of service and coverage to our residents and at less cost than the City presently incurs, and the County has the resources to offer a seamless transition of services."
Beginning March 1, 2012, animals that require licensing will only need to be licensed and registered through Kenton County. Covington license and registration fees will no longer be required. The county will honor all current Covington license through their expiration date of June 30, 2012.
