|Yep, it's a county requirement. The money goes to Animal Services to help fund staffing and programs.
You must provide proof of rabies (certificate signed by the vet that administered the vaccine or a medical waiver) and proof of speuter to get the discount.
Licenses are valid for 1 year, 2 years or 3 years
Speutered $19 (1 year) $35 (2 years) $49 (3 years)
Fertile $36 (1 year) $69 (2 years) $98 (3 years)
Senior Citizens $15 (1 year) $27 (2 years) $39 (3 years)
Replacement tags and license transfers from other counties are $5.
It's a $500 fine to not license a dog.
AC will make surprise visits if a license is allowed to lapse or a rabies certificate is not sent in if it expires before license renewal.
Here there are benefits if a dog wearing a license is picked up by ACO or brought into the shelter as a stray.
* If picked up by an ACO, the licensed dog can be taken straight home instead of to the shelter if the ACO can get in touch with the owners using the license info.
* If an injured licensed dog is picked up by an ACO, the dog will get emergency medical care.
* 1st time impound fees are $44 cheaper for licensed dogs.
* Licensed dogs brought into the shelter are held longer before being placed for adoption.
