Why do I have to license my dog?
Licensing your dog is an important way to show you care for your pet. Your dog's license number allows you to be identified and notified if your dog should get loose and is picked up by Animal Control Officers. Licensed dogs are held longer in the Animal Shelter if they are picked up stray. Licensing your dog is also the law.
