  • Helps reunite lost dogs with their families:
    A dog tag makes it easier to locate a dog’s owner.
  • Cost effective:
    In addition to an impounding fee, dog owners are charged daily boarding fees for each day their dog stays at the pound. If your dog is wearing a license tag, you will be contacted immediately and can prevent boarding fees from adding up.
  • Helps fund valuable services:
    Dog licensing fees are used to offset the costs of providing dog control services in our community.
  • Encourages population control:
    Reduced licensing fees encourage owners to spay/neuter their dogs.
