Vaccinations & Tags

It is important to license your pet. Licensing your pet ensures that your pet has a current rabies vaccination and provides peace of mind that other pets in the community are also protected against this fatal disease. When licensing your pet you are provided a sturdy metal tag to attach to your pets collar. This tag, when placed on the collar, will provide quick identification of your pet and ensure its quick return to your family if it ever happens to get lost.
