A visit to SPCA Cincinnati’s Pet ID Day THIS Sunday, February 19 could help save your pet’s life in three different ways!

Dog Licenses
At Pet ID Day, pet owners can buy their 2012 Hamilton County dog licenses. By Ohio law, all dogs over the age of three months MUST have a license which must be renewed every year, usually by January 31.

This year Hamilton County has extended the renewal deadline to February 29. After February 29 the price of a license renewal will double.

A dog license, worn on a dog’s collar could be your beloved pet’s ticket home if they get lost or loose. Lost dogs wearing a valid Hamilton County tag can be easily traced to the owner when the finder calls (513) 946-DOGS, the 24-hour hotline for returning lost dogs. Each dog license has a unique number and if a deputy warden or other person finds a lost dog with a license, a simple phone call or search online will provide the dog owner’s name, address and telephone number.

SPCA Cincinnati will also offer discounted microchip implants. The microchips contain information that could help reunited a lost pet and its owner. Microchipping and registration for one cat or dog is $10, a savings of more than $65.

Rabies Shot
In additional, SPCA Cincinnati will offer a free rabies shot for your dog with a purchase of a dog license.

Rabies shots are also free for cats, but SPCA Cincinnati is asking for a small donation of your choice (since cats do not require a license).
