Dog license prices to raise to “match inflation rates”

Local News

State Leaders have been making the headlines with debate over taxes, healthcare and today, animal licenses.

The State Department of Agriculture Executive Deputy Secretary, Michael Smith, visited the Anna Shelter today.  He proposes two bills that could keep animals and the public safer, by stabilizing the funds for the dog law.

If passed, the bills would raise the price of dog licenses from around $6 to around $10, to match the rate of inflation over the last 20 years.  He says this would give extra money to places like the Anna Shelter and provide more resources to dogs.
