REGISTER YOUR PET WITH THE CITY
If you are relocating to any part of the DFW area for the first time, it is important to know that whatever city you will now be residing in, you must register your pet with that city. The city of Dallas, as well as most of the other suburbs of Dallas all require by law that your pet be registered annually with them. The fee is very small, and it ensures that if your pet is ever picked up by Animal Control Services, you will not be charged a fine for failing to register your pet. It also assists them in returning your pet if it ever becomes lost. Moreover, it encourages pet owners to keep their pets healthy and vaccinated (as this is a requirement for registration).
Some cities, such as the City of Dallas, allow you to register your pet Online (www.DallasAnimalServices.org). Other cities have a PDF form on the city website that you print off and mail in.
