Is it just another way for the county to make money? I didn't even know it was a thing until I saw a news release that you now have to go into the office rather than requesting online as was an option until recently apparently.
Years ago, our Alaskan Malamute bit our son who was about five at the time. Son went down to kiss her while she was asleep and it startled her. Took him to Urgent Care to looked at and Animal Control was called. We had never registered our dogs (Dalmatian previously) and AC didn't fine us but did say to register her ASAP. If I remember correctly, they do issue a tag for your dog to wear similar to the rabies tag your vet gives you.What is the fine for not having a license. And how would it be discovered that they dont' have one? Does you dog have to wear a tag or something?
