Your Dog’s Ticket Home……
Please protect your dog by maintaining their license. It is their ticket home should you become separated, and it is also a requirement for public safety issues.
Ensure that your dog is currently vaccinated against rabies. Dog owners are required by law to have their dogs vaccinated against rabies by a veterinarian and licensed:
a) By the time the dog is three months of age, or
b) Within 30 days after obtaining or bringing any dog over three months of age into this jurisdiction, and,
c) Dog owners are required to renew the dog license before it expires
d) If there is a change of ownership of a dog, the new owner shall have thirty (30) days from date of transfer to change the ownership information.
Dog licenses are valid for one year from date of purchase, and the rabies vaccination must be effective through the entire licensing period. The primary or first rabies vaccination is valid for one year. The second rabies vaccination given one-year later, and subsequent (or booster) rabies vaccinations are valid for three years. If you are unsure of the duration of your dog´s vaccination, please call your veterinarian.
