Dog Licenses

Licenses ensure that dogs are vaccinated against rabies, as proof of rabies vaccination is required to purchase a license. Licensing your dog provides a way of tracing the dog back to you, and can help locate you in the event your dog is lost, or it is injured and treatment needs to be authorized. It may keep your dog from making an unnecessary trip to the Springfield pound.
