  • A pet license is the best insurance policy to reunite lost pets with their families.
  • The owner will be notified if a pet wearing its license shows up at the shelter.
  • If your licensed pet is found roaming free, it will be returned to you instead of being taken to the shelter.
  • An injured animal wearing a license is more likely to receive emergency veterinary care.
