Dog Licensing

Our pets count on us for their basic needs, and that includes doing everything possible to find them when they wander away from home. One of the most basic ways to protect your pets is to license them, which is a ticket home.If lost, could your pet tell anyone where they live? Could your pet hop on a bus, jump on the light rail, or call a cab? Unfortunately, none of these options exist for your beloved animal. That’s where licensing your pet through the Foothills Animal Shelter comes in.

For more information on licensing your pet, please visit Foothills Animal Shelter Licensing page.
