Lost and Found: As you probably agree, we would rather your pet did not have to ever go the shelter. If your pet has a license, we can easily trace the number and return him or her back home. This is obviously less stress and you and your pet.
Money Generated: The money that is taken in from license fees can be (and is required to be) used for other Animal Control operations such as supplementing the cost of animal care, equipment and other projects.
It is the LAW!: It is much less expensive to pay the fee than to pay the fine. It is required that every dog have a license within 30 days of ownership.
