Why should I license my dog?

Licensing reunites lost pets with their owners. A dog license can be traced 24 hours a day, every day of the year by an on-call animal control officer in any part of the county. The license information includes home and alternate phone numbers, a secondary person to contact in case of emergency and medical and dietary information for the dog. Before the dog license, owners were only required to have a current rabies tag on their pet. Rabies tags could only be traced through the issuing veterinary clinic and only when the clinic was open.
