Royal Oak to implement comprehensive dog licensing

Posted on July 13th, 2013 No Comments

In Royal Oak, Michigan, dogs are required to be licensed and rabies-vaccinated to be considered as complying with the city’s rules regarding dog ownership. In order to ensure owners are compliant with the regulations, animal officers began conducting door-to-door inspections of households, looking for prospective violators, on July 1.

According to Royal Oak and Berkley animal control officer Gail Briggs, this protocol will help immensely in reuniting lost dogs with their owners. Licensed dogs will immediately be brought to their owners and won’t have to spend a prolonged period of time in animal shelters.

Additionally, as the dog’s will be required to have an up-to-date rabies vaccination, this will help shelters be spared the protocol of having to quarantine the dog for 10 days if it bites a person.

City Manager Don Johnson said owners who have unlicensed dogs will be fined $20 and will be given 14 days to purchase a license.
