Why License Your Pet
- Pet licences assist in the fast and safe return of your pet if it gets lost.
- A licence is immediately visible to anyone who finds your pet and shows that your pet belongs to someone.
- Your pet is returned home faster and/or spends less time in the shelter.
- If your pet is lost or involved in an emergency situation, the licence provides information needed to contact you.
