They find many dogs on the streets of the city every week without a collar or any identifying tags. VBPD Animal Control Unit is initiating this program in an effort to reunite local pet owners with their furry friends.
Go by the police department Monday through Friday, 8am-4pm, or request the Animal Control officer to respond to your residence for pet registration. You will be asked to fill out a short easy form with all your pertinent information. They will issue your pet a tag! Any pet can be registered – dogs, cats, ferrets, you name it!
Should your pet ever get lost, they will be matched up to you when located by calling the Humane Society and providing their unique registration number on the tag.
This can work in conjunction with, or in place of the micro-chip. This program is FREE of charge!
Their mission is to reunite you with your pet as quickly and efficiently as possible. So call VBPD at 772-978-4600 and come on by to participate in this great service!
