    By me if you live within the city limits it is the law that you register your animals with the city and it is like $60 the first year and then drops to $25 after that if your pet is fixed and senior dogs are like $10 so it is obviously a money grab. Outside the city limits you don't have to do any of that crap.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Christine, so you only have to pay up once and that's it? b/c we have to renew every year and pay the fee annually.

    this is a good thread b/c now it has me wondering where the money is actually going?

    yea by me there is no lifetime fee either. Only annually. I understand about the rabies thing, but Rocco has his tag attached to his collar that has the year of his rabies vaccination along with the name and address and phone of his vet. I know there are records there. Plus his name tag has his name and all of my info (phone, address) on it as well. There is definitely a way for them to check up on his records without taking him somewhere. For us the fee varies by age, and if they are neutered or not. It's not the money but the principle. Then I have another bill I have to pay each year and this town has problems sending bills to you but asking where the money is the feel they're owed. I know the late fee on the license renewal would be double and I'd almost rather just not get involved in it altogether.

    Well since its late in the year could you just wait til Jan and then do it, that is if you plan on doing it? Then it wouldnt be doubled right?

    No I think renewals are done in June so if you were to get a pet in May you would pay the full year just for a month. They won't charge you as being late if you get a pet let's say in in Sept. because technically you aren't late. I could say I got him in 5 yrs from now not like they would know lol

    yes, here in Pennsylvania you can get a life time license if the dog is microchipped or tattooed... Only time you have to get a new one is if you move to a new county. I live in Montgomery County so if I moved to anther in PA I would have to get a new life time license or pay annually. Pa annual cost is I think 6 bucks, if they dog is fixed or a senior... More if not fixed

    Tate and Finn have their dog licenses; we get these random checks coming house to house...hasn't happened to me yet though.
    This is very similar to where I live. Here they must be registered by the time they are a year-old. It's not a very expensive thing, and I know people whose dog got loose and they were able to get him back because the police checked the dog tags with the township. They got a call and got their baby back. It definitely was worth it to them. It's also a way to "ensure" your dog has its rabies shot -- you have to provide documentation of the shots in order to get the license.

    Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them...

    Hmmmm this has me wondering about our town. Our animal control officer almost lived at my house over the summer squirrel bites and bats in the pool and she never said anything to me about Sheldon needing to be licensed his rabies tag stays on him along with identification tags with his name our names phone numbers and address. Has me wondering though.

    sent from my Droid RAZR with love!
