Responsible Pet Ownership

Responsible pet ownership means

    • Making a commitment for the life of the animal–that could be 20 years or more!
    • Pets are spayed/neutered to prevent unwanted animals and to help with many behavior issues. The cost of licensing your dog is less if the dog is spayed/neutered in certain areas.  For more information, visit our spay/neuter initiative.
    • Proper identification of the pet: a microchip (keep registration current), name tag, or tattoo
    • Renters: obtain permission from the landlord first. Think long-term: will your next apartment be pet-friendly too?  Are you willing to pay a pet deposit at your next rental?  Helpful tips:
