Default New Pet License Law - Free licensing through the end of October

I realize there is a thread about licensing pets, but since this is a time sensitive offer, I hope the word gets out faster by posted a separate thread.

FREE LICENSING EXTENDED UNTIL THE END OF OCTOBER!!!

NOTE****License costs after free period ends. Unspayed/neutered dogs $50, Spayed or neutered $5....all cats $5. (Annual fee)

SA - Express News by Cathy Rosenthal
Just two days ago, I mentioned that you could get your pet licenses for free through the end of September.

But I spoke to Gary Hendel, director of Animal Care Services this week, and he says they will extend the amnesty for the free pet licenses through the end of October. So there is still time to get your pet's city license and save the $5 annual fee if they are spayed or neutered or the $50 fee if they are intact.

To file for your free pet license, visit the Animal Care Services' website at City of San Antonio | Official Web Site or City of San Antonio | Official Web Site and fill out and submit the form online. Then fax, mail, or drop off your pet's vaccination records to Animal Care Services. The fax is 210-207-6673 and the address is 4710 State Highway 151, San Antonio, Texas 78227. Normally license tags will be mailed back within a week, but expect a little delay as people take advantage of the free offer.

City of San Antonio | Official Web Site

My extra note: Our animal shelters are overloaded with unlicensed animals. Licensing them will ensure they get back home. Otherwise, the time period at the humane society for unclaimed of feral pets is very short before they are put down. We have countless volunteers fostering the maximum amount of pets, including their own pet limit.....this city needs to be very proactive about getting our pets licensed and back home where they belong.

**See thread about lost dogs.

My guess is no...at least during this free offer. Is there a phone number to call?

I added the word "Pet" to the title. Some readers might have been thinking this was about vehicle or fishing licenses, etc.

They did, but apparently, the traditional collar tags are back, as an option to doing the microchip. This is a recent development.

The tags are supposed to be an optional thing.

The licensing is about registering you animal not the hang tag itself. You register your dogs microchip number so they can find you if they find your pet.
