Dog licenses now available

To get a Grass Valley dog license, proof of a current rabies vaccination is required. Dog owners must bring a current rabies tag or rabies certificate from a veterinarian to the Grass Valley Animal Shelter & Control at 556-B Freeman Lane. The shelter is next to the water treatment plant and between the PacBell yard and Les Schwab Tires.

Licenses for spayed/neutered dogs cost $5 each, for unaltered dogs, $15 each. Licenses are available Jan. 2, and a late penalty of $10 for each license will be charged after Feb. 2.

Licenses must be worn by dogs at all times. This helps ensure that a lost dog will get back home and helps with verification of rabies vaccination should a dog bite occur.

Grass Valley Animal Shelter & Control’s hours are 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 to 11 a.m. Saturdays. They are closed Sundays and holidays. The phone number is 477-4630.

Dog owners in Nevada City with three numbers in their home address must provide proof of current rabies vaccination and license their dogs at City Hall on Broad Street.

Dog owners residing in unincorporated areas with five numbers in their home address must provide proof of current rabies vaccinations and license their dogs at Nevada County Animal Control & Shelter on McCourtney Road. The phone number is 273-2179.
