The City of Racine Public Health Department and the Wisconsin Humane Society are announcing the 2017 Pet Licensing Amnesty Period from March 12th through April 2nd which will feature an opportunity for pet owners to obtain a 2017 pet license without incurring a $10 late fee. Annual animal licensing is required for all pets and a current rabies certificate is required to receive or renew an animal license. The amnesty promotion will allow City of Racine residents to license their pets without having to pay this year’s late fee that is assessed after January 31st each year.
“In 2016, the first year we hosted an Amnesty Day event, 100 animals were properly licensed and we want to offer additional opportunities to residents to make their pet’s license current,” said Marcia Fernholz, director of the City of Racine Public Health Department Environmental Health Division. “Unlicensed pets are a public health concern and we have a duty to protect the residents and other pets in the Racine community.”
