Why should I license my dog?

The dog license tag provides identification if your dog were to be lost or stolen and also protects the public health by preventing the spread of rabies from dogs to humans. Dog license tags saves lives of lost dogs ending up in the animal shelter by quickly identifying the dog and its owner, increasing the odds that they are reunited. It's also the law.
