Dog licenses not only provide benefits for your dog (see Free Ride Home Program at the bottom of this page), but they are required by law for every dog, anywhere in the county. Every 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 door to door license compliance campaign.

Cat Licenses Are Also Available

Cat 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.

Vaccination Clinics

Jackson County Animal Shelter host a vaccination clinic the 3rd Saturday of each month (Excluding Major Holidays) to help pet owners comply with regulations and animal health needs.  Cost is $10.00 cash per vaccination.  Hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 

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!
