    Benefits of Dog Licensing

     

    • A Montgomery County license can be traced 24 hours a day, 365 a year from a link with the
      Montgomery County Auditor
    • A license distinguishes a lost dog from a stray dog.  Strangers are more apt to extend themselves to licensed pet.
    • Provides legal proof of ownership
    • Licensed dogs are eligible for the Vacation Registration Program.
    • Licensed dogs, by law, are housed at the Shelter 14 days before becoming the property of the county.
    • Revenue from licensing is the Animal Shelter's major source of funding.

    KENNEL LICENSING

    A Kennel License can be obtained for $100 from the County Building at 451 West 3rd Street.  Kennel Licenses are not available from any other dog license-selling locations. Those who purchase a Kennel License must also purchase a Vendor's License for the intent to sell breeding stock.

    IT'S THE LAW!
