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.
Thanks guys! I'll look into it.
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.
There is a part of your heart not alive until a bulldog has entered your life.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
my sister got a fine for her dog not being registered, they have had him for awhile but have only been in their new house for almost a yr, app a animal control was going door to door checking to see if people had their dogs registered!

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.
