Licensing is a requirement of state law. The license, attached to your dog’s collar, will identify you as the owner should the dog be lost.
If your dog is found running at large by the Dog Warden’s office and is wearing a tag, you will be notified by phone or in person that your dog has been impounded. With a current license attached, you are assured that your dog will be held for 14 days. Dogs not wearing their current license tags are held only 3 days before adoption or euthenization.
