But my pet will never run away (or why we need licenses) - pets


The city I live in just better its fees for dog and cat licenses. It's now $30 a year for unneutered/unsprayed pets and $20 a year for sprayed/neutered pets.

Even despite the fact that these are not major dollars, there were plenty of complaints. Some associates care about the increase (we were at $5) just a way to raise more money at some point in account cuts. Some associates who keep their pet - in particular their cat - contained by all the time think it is unfair to make them pay at all.

Please bear in mind that licensing your pet has several payback for all of us:

1. It ensures that dogs have had their rabies vaccinations. Rabies is 99. 9% fatal for dogs and humans and requiring proof of jab for a abandon protects the total community. There are irresponsible owners who might not do this if it wasn't required.

2. Licenses help cities keep track of how many pets a character owns and how many dogs are in the city.

Many cities limit the come to of dogs or pets any one household can have. Again, given the number of irresponsible or deranged people out there, this is a crucial limitation for area health.

3. Licenses tell the beast charge officers that a dog has an owner and isn't an abandoned or stray dog. In some cities, unclaimed dogs not including licenses are euthanized in fewer days than dogs with collars.

4. Licenses may have call in rank about the owner, thus plateful reunite dogs with their owners. If you think Fido would never bolt out your door to chase a bike courier or butterfly, you don't know dogs.

5. Licenses requires collars which enable owners to bring in more tags. For example, you can note any acute illnesses your dog has (e. g. , diabetes) or note on the tag that you assurance payment of emergency health check bills for your dog.

6. Abandon fees help pay for local animal shelters and beast charge officers. Yes, my city's become more intense is obsessed by budget cuts and thank goodness, my city is progressive an adequate amount of to find the money to argue our being be in charge of department.

7. Accredit fees help motivate owners to have sprayed/neutered dogs all the way through the cost reduction. If owners aren't planning to show or breed dogs, having the dogs sprayed or neutered is a shape benefit for the animals.

No one likes taxes or fees, but sometimes they do have good reasons to exist.
