Requirements for Dog Licenses

 

Violations of Dog Licenses

Violation of the licensing law carries a fine of $75.00.

There are numerous other reasons for licensing your dog!  If your dog wanders from home he/she is immediately identifiable through the license and can be returned to you.  At the very least you could be contacted and advised your dog was safe at the pound.

In the event of a human medical emergency responding personnel would know how many dogs you have and what their names were.  Same goes for the fire department.

If your dog is found injured we have the opportunity to call you so you can make any life/death decisions.  Valuable time can be lost trying to locate owners.
