Not required in the county I live in. I'm not really sure if there is a requirement within city limits.

It's required here, but I doubt everyone does it. It costs $4 for a spayed/neutered dog. I have no idea if it's more for an intact dog, or cat. I do it because it's necessary for some events.

Here it is $5 for s/n, $10 intact. I only do it because we had one neighbor who loved to complain to animal control for the stupidest things, even though they let their dog wander the neighborhood.

You know the details of price etc since we live three blocks from here. I do not license. I used to, diligently. Then I was moving so often, or I would get a dog fixed after I paid for full etc etc and I just kept moving it back when I was going to get it done and didn't do it. Procrastination at its best I suppose. I should do it but we're going to be moving in a few months so...that's what's a pain, I pay for a full year in the county and then I move counties 6 months in!

It is the law here. For our county it costs $10. There is no difference for intact dogs. You can buy a kennel license for $50, and you get 5 tags, additional tags cost $1. I have a kennel license and buy a few extra tags so that all my dogs have their own.

I do it because it is the law to do so. The maximum penalty if you are caught is double the purchase price, so $20 -- not much of a deterrent. And, they cannot send the dog warden around and demand to see whether your dogs are properly licensed. The only way to get caught is to have your dog picked up for roaming, or to have a neighbor call about another problem.

Even then, they do not do anything much.

But evenso, it is the law here and as I do not have any conflict with my conscience about it, I go ahead and pay it.

My concern with it is that my dogs are registered by breed. If at some point the breed is banned, they know where to find them. And, if they decide to enact limit laws, or charge more for intact dogs, I'm a sitting duck.

So far it has not bitten me in the butt though.

if my dogs every cause problems, throw the book at me, until such time, it is nobody's business if I have dogs or not, what sex they are, are they neutered or intact, what breed they are, or anything else.

Do not know which to mark as mine are done through a kennel license instead of individual dogs due the number kept.

I have always kept my dogs licenses up to date until this year. I have just been too broke to keep up.
