The Benefits of Licensing Your Pet
Dog licences offer cheap insurance for the safe return of your dog should he or she become lost. Dog owners like to believe that their dog will never go missing, but chances are that your dog will wander off at some point in his or her life.
A licence on your dog’s collar is the fastest way to contact you when your dog is lost
A licence is immediately visible to anyone who finds your dog and shows that your dog is not homeless. Members of the public are more likely to approach a licensed dog – helping to ensure your pet is brought to a safe environment more quickly.
Licensed dogs have a higher chance of getting home compared to unlicensed dogs
Licenses are cost effective as a staff member will contact you immediately, to prevent boarding fees from adding up.
A licence means your dog will spend less time in the shelter, reducing the stress he or she may experience.
A licence allows the staff to contact you in case of emergency in order for you to make vital decisions regarding the care of your pet 24 hours a day 365 days of the year.
