“Licensing your pet is very important because it gives your beloved dog or cat a much better chance of finding their way back home should they ever get lost. As an added bonus, you can know that the licensing fee you pay is going to a good cause—supporting RASKC’s shelter, pet adoption program, veterinary care, and other services for animals in need.”
