Minneapolis Pet Licenses: Get ’Em While They’re Hot!
Hey, guess what! Sidewalk Dog is selling pet licenses!
That’s right: We’ve partnered with our good friends at Minneapolis Animal Care & Control (MACC) to encourage responsible pet ownership by selling Minneapolis pet licenses right here on SidewalkDog.com!
Why license your pet? For starters, it’s the law. In Minneapolis, fines for unlicensed pets start at $100 and can go up to $2,000. The cost of a one-year license for a spayed or neutered animal is just $25. And although there are estimated to be more than 800,000 pet dogs in the Twin Cities area, just 14,000 or so are licensed with the City of Minneapolis.
But it’s not just about following the rules: Funds from licenses support many important MACC programs and services, like investigating animal welfare and cruelty cases, kenneling at no-cost for victims of domestic abuse and emergency vet care for injured animals brought to the animal shelter. Plus, MACC will give your pet a free ride home if he or she is licensed and found in Minneapolis.
Here’s a little nugget on the subject from Sidewalk Dog’s Ali Jarvis: “Our goal at Sidewalk Dog is to help make the Twin Cities one of the best places in the country for dogs, and we are excited to be able to help residents get their pet licenses in a fast, easy way. In fact, it’s so important to us and to our partners that Subaru of America and Minneapolis-basedSolid Gold Northland and Metro Dog Daycare & Boarding are offering awesome incentives to make the decision to comply with the law a little easier.”
See, not only did we want to encourage residents to comply with pet ownership laws, but we wanted to reward those who do with extra incentives. So, when you purchase a pet license from SidewalkDog.com, you’ll receive five free car washes from local Subaru dealerships, free pet food from Solid Gold Northland, plus one free full day of doggy daycare at Metro Dogs!
When licensing your pet is this easy, there’s no reason to wait. Click here to buy your Minneapolis pet license today!
