Benefits of Licensing
Licensing your pet not only displays responsible pet ownership but it also helps
fund local animal welfare initiatives in your community. It serves as a form of identification and aids in reuniting lost pets with their worried owners.  It also shows proof that your pet is current on their rabies vaccination in case of a bite.
