My county doesn't have licensing laws. WE do have leash laws now at least and Animal Control.

I do not license mine as it is not required. I used to license them when I lived in the city though. With the breeds I own, I try to be uber responsible and make sure that I am following all laws to the letter!

I pay the fees on all my dogs.. but now I've taken in a rescue/foster guy and that makes four. One dog too many legally. I don't know what to do, so I'm not doing anything just yet.

It costs $50 yearly for Benny who is intact ( had only the retained testicle removed and only $10) for Jake ( DH Borzoi ) who was neutered when we adopted him. Our son would be fined $500 if his pit bull Annie was not spayed. If he did not comply she would be taken.

Definitely feel like we are are being fined for being responsible owners but DH works for the city so we pay it.

Just came across this old post. We don't license because it's not required in our area. I did license though when lived in the middle of the city.

Depends on where you live in California. Dog licensing is done by the city or the county, not the state.

Here in Kleinmond, South Afica, we have to licence the dogs. No more than 2 dogs allowed per property and unspayed bitches cost more to licence than spayed bitches. Cost is R60.00 per annum - comes to about $10 a year on average exchange rate

Yes, we license our dogs. In our area, it’s $20.00 per year for a spayed/neutered dog. And $35.00 per year for an intact/unfixed dog.

Because we are heavily involved with the local animal shelter, there really isn’t anyway of getting out of buying their licenses. As part of my mom’s job and my volunteer work, we have often had to help send out “warning letters” to those who hadn’t purchased their license by March of that year. It made me laugh to discover that our dogs were the only ones licensed on our street that has multiple dogs living at every house. I don’t like the fact that we have to pay every year where we live, while a few townships away from ours, you are able to purchase a license that is valid for the entire life of the dog, cat or ferret. Price there, varies depending on whether your pet has a microchip, fixed/intact, rabies shot, and age.

I am thankful that we do not have to license our cats, our town wanted to make it mandatory that all cats be licensed and wear a collar at all times (cats are not allowed off of property in our town - Our cats are strict indoor cats so I do not have to worry about breaking that rule). We fought the town at a town meeting in regards to licensing cats, pointing out that a lot of people already complain about having to license their dog, and most people would probably end up dumping their cat or surrendering it to the already overcrowded shelter, claiming that they cannot afford it. We also brought in collars that had been worn by cats that had come into the shelter, showing how destroyed some of them were from cats trying to remove them. Also pointing out that a cat could quite possibly become caught up in a bush or tree if wearing a collar and pose a health risk. Our town decided against cat licensing.
