Have you licensed your pet yet? We know what you’re thinking. Ugh, do I really have to? I’ll get on it — right after I regrout my bathroom and get a root canal. Good news: mandatory pet licensing doesn’t have to be a hassle, and there are other great reasons to cross this item off your to-do list.
Across North America, pet license compliance perpetually hovers in the 10% range. I’ve seen this time and time again through the hundreds of municipal consultations I’ve led. There are many reasons offered as to why this often polarizing municipal requirement is so consistently low, including – but not limited to – being cost-prohibitive. But contrary to popular belief, cost is not the biggest detractor when it comes to persistently low compliance.
