Pet License Requirements and Fees
pet-tag-dog-licenseEvery dog over 6 months of age is required to have a current rabies vaccination and county dog license. This includes house dogs, kennel dogs, and breeding dogs. State law and Jackson County Ordinance requires the license and anyone in violation is subject to substantial fines. Animal control enforces this law through contact while working cases, upon impoundment of an unlicensed dog, and by a license compliance campaign.

Cat Licenses Are Also AvailableCat licenses are voluntary but encouraged in Jackson County. Both ensure the pet is protected from contracting or spreading rabies. It also provides identification and aids in returning pets to owners.

Your pet license also assures care if he/she is found injured while wearing the tag. It says I belong to someone, I am not just another stray. People often hold pets with a license at their homes until an owner can be contacted saving the pet the stress of being impounded and saving the owner redemption fees. A LICENSE SAYS YOU CARE!
