Why should I license?
The primary reason is to prevent the spreading of rabies. Rabies is a constant health threat, and rabies vaccinations are good for your pets health. Did you know that rabies is 100% fatal for humans if not treated properly? Animal licensing helps Fulton County Animal Services monitor compliance with local and state rabies vaccination laws.
Licensing also helps Animal Services identify family pets, should an animal become lost. The fees from licensing are used to care for animals at the Fulton County Animal Shelter and investigate complaints about stray animals, among other services. Other goals of animal licensing are to promote responsible pet ownership and to reduce the tragedies associated with lost pets and pet overpopulation.
What are the licensing requirements?
Anyone owning a dog, cat, or ferret four months of age or older in Fulton County must have their pet vaccinated against rabies every one or three years and purchase a license.
Payment for your license is due within 30 days of the expiration of your current license. If you are licensing for the first time, you must purchase a license when the pet reaches 4 months of age or within 30 days of moving into Fulton County.
License TermBy ordinance, licenses must be purchased for the same term as the rabies vaccination and will expire on the same date that the vaccination expires. If the vaccination administered to your pet is for one year, a one-year license must be purchased. If your pet was given a 3-year vaccination, a 3-year license must be purchased.
Why was licensing privatized?
