I'm betting we're all on top of our pets' shots, but does your doggie have a license? Even though many cities, like NYC, require you to renew dogs' licenses annually, not everyone does – or even knows! – to do this. Some quick research about our policies here in San Francisco, found this shocking (to me) stat: There are an estimated 120,000 dogs living in San Francisco . . . and only about 20,000 of them are licensed at this time!
Like I advocated for tags in addition to microchips, having the proper pet license can be a quicker way to reunite you with a lost pet, as those tags are immediately visible.
