Calvert County residents who own dogs and cats are legally required to license their pets. As part of the licensing process, every dog and cat must also be vaccinated for rabies.
“Pet owners are required to license their cats and dogs to ensure public health and safety,” shared Calvert County Department of Public Safety Chief Animal Control Officer Craig Dichter. “Pet licensing and up-to-date vaccinations can help us avoid an outbreak of rabies in the county.” Licensing also helps animal control officers reunite lost pets with their owners, he added, and failure to license pet dogs and cats could result in a $50 fine per incident.
