Both dogs and the cat are microchipped. I forget which company (it's one for the dogs and a different one for the cat). Jack and Missy were done by the rescue, I had Sassy done at the vet. All the information is up to date.

All three wear collars with tags with my phone number on them at all times.

My city does not license pets, so they aren't. I suppose I could license them with St. Paul, but...*shrug*. I don't see the need.

What is the point of licensing, anyway? Who is checking to see if pets are licensed, and maybe more importantly... for what reason would they check?

Maybe other areas are more strict about it. I don't know. But considering it's "the law" here, no one has ever inquired if my pets are licensed or not... I just don't get what purpose it serves or when it would ever come into play.

Here the main point is that the dogs are reg with the city, so if they pick them up and they don't have tags they can look it up in their system that this person owns this breed here..and check in to see if that is the dogs possible home instead of just sending it to the pound( if they are not chipped or wearing a collar/tags).

I forgot to add to my post ours are 5.00 spay/neutered and 25.00 unaltered yearly

- All the dogs wear collars/tags
- All are microchipped (with petsafe I think it's called..)

in Miami, our dogs aren't licensed. but in Boston, future dog will need to be, you need the license tag to be at parks and police officers/park officials DO check and there is a fine

1: Is your dog microchipped (I'm pretty sure less than 5% of the population is tattooed at this point)? If so, what company? Do you keep the information up to date?
Yup, he's microchipped. I think it's thru AKC-something. I updated the information last year with my new number and stuff. Check it a few times a year just to make sure.

2: Does your dog wear a collar with ID? If so, when? What other tags, if any, are on the collar?
He wears a collar all day every day except for overnight and in the mornings when we first wake up he is usually "naked" when coming in from morning potty. It's just an ID tag with his name and my cell phone. I keep his rabies tag and microchip tag on my keychain.

3: If applicable, do you keep your dog licensed?
I need to get his county license but never have. Nobody seems to do it around here. I don't live in a neighborhood or anything, but I feel like I should do this.

My city's license application says...
"Dog license tags are required, and provide us with information needed to return our dog if it is lost, prevent an expensive stay at the Animal Control Center, and even save your dog***8217;s life."

I don't want to have to pay money to get my dog back if he/she happens to escape and get picked up by AC!

1: Is your dog microchipped (I'm pretty sure less than 5% of the population is tattooed at this point)? They are not, which whenever I think of I'm exasperated by. I will be certified shortly at work to do it, so I plan on just doing them all myself for free.

2: Does your dog wear a collar with ID? If so, when? What other tags, if any, are on the collar? Yes, but only outside of the house. Identification and rabies tags.

3: If applicable, do you keep your dog licensed? Yes, but two are not in my name. We are over the "city limit" on dogs, but when we moved here we already were and I'm not rehoming a dog to live here. We've had no problems and know our neighbors.

I my area, if they pick up your dog and it's not licensed, they will fine you for not having a license (they fine you either way, but fine you more and make you get a license if they aren't, then check in on you if you don't renew it). If your dog isn't UTD on rabies vacc at that time, they will fine you. If your dog bites someone and is not licensed, they can impound your dog. To me it's not worth it, what really is $18/month? The boys are even less being neutered, and heck IMO I think some of the fines and fees in this area are far to low, I get so sick and tired of the neighbors who let than dang dogs roam, tear up and soil my property, and harass my livestock!
