Ottawa County canvassing for Unlicensed Dogs | Business
If you live in the Allendale or Park township area and have a dog, you may be getting a visit from an Ottawa County official in the next few weeks. They are canvassing the areas for unlicensed dogs.
Having your dog licensed assures it will be returned to you should it ever become lost. It is very simple to obtain a license in person at many government offices, on line or at many veterinarians. Cost for a license can run from $10 to $70.
Households with unlicensed dogs will be given information on how to obtain a license that includes proof of a current rabies shot and proof of spaying or neutering. Those who do not obtain a license run the risk of being issued a ticket. Having a license that can be identified eliminates the need for your dog to end up going to the animal shelter, should they become lost.
Funds from licensing help with shelter costs provided by the Harbor Humane Society.
