Headlines City Gets Tough on Pet Licensing, Collects $380K Published 3 years ago on April 3, 2018 By PETS+ Staff Share Tweet Licensing revenue has doubled. The city of Sacramento, CA, has doubled its pet-licensing revenue after launching a strict enforcement policy. From June to March, the city collected more than $380,000, the Sacramento Bee reports. That’s almost twice what it took in during the equivalent time frame a year prior. Dog and cat owners have to get their pets licensed, and they have to get them vaccinated for rabies; the cost is $20. Those who don’t comply face fines of $300 or, for repeat offenders, $500. In June, the city announced that it was cracking down. It said it would issue warnings as a first step, with a $300 fine to be issued if pet owners failed to heed two warnings. Even then, the issue is “correctable” — the fine is canceled if the owner gets the license within a month. The law had been on the books for many years but hadn’t been enforced consistently. The city has assessed well over 500 fines but has collected only $2,100, according to the Bee.
