Dog TagsIn an effort to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats in Forsyth County, the County Commissioners approved a new pet licensing procedure.

If you reside in Forsyth County and own a dog or cat you must:

  • Obtain a registration for the animal within 60 days after it is acquired.
  • There is an annual registration fee for each dog and/or cat you own.
  • The fee is based on whether or not the animal has been sterilized ($5.00 if animal has been spayed/neutered - $25.00 if they have not)
  • Provide your dog a collar or harness to which the registration tag can be attached. This is NOT a requirement for cat owners.
