Blog #14 - License Your Dog

Please License Your Dog Today

In addition to its role as Marin County’s animal shelter, the Marin Humane Society provides dog-licensing services for all of Marin County’s cities and towns, as well as its unincorporated areas. Dog licenses are required by law for all dogs over the age of four months who live in Marin County.

For more information about licensing your pet, call (415) 506-6220 or visit The Marin Humane Society Animal Services web page.

Why is it important for you to get your dog licensed?

􀂾 If your dog gets lost, a license tag on your dog’s collar is the fastest way to reunite you and your dog. Even if your dog is micro chipped, a license tag is immediately visible and doesn’t require a scanning device to read;

􀂾 A current license lets people know that your dog has received the required vaccination to protect your dog from rabies;

􀂾 The fee you pay for your dog license and license renewal helps support the animal shelter;

􀂾 Your dog’s license shows that you are a responsible guardian;

􀂾 Licensing your dog IS THE LAW in Marin County.
