How Do I Register a Pet?

Why should I register my pet?
By registering pets, owners receive a free online profile that they have complete control over. Multiple phone numbers, email addresses, and contact persons can all be listed as well as any special medical or dietary needs the pet may have. This enables finders to access the owner's information 24/7 so that pets can be returned home much faster! Also, owners who register, vaccinate, sterilize, and identify their pets can receive up to $75 off their first impound fees if their pet ends up at the Plano Animal Shelter.
What are the Fees?
All fees are for a 12 month registration with current rabies vaccination. Any owner that applies for an annual registration 31 or more days after the expiration date of the animal's previous registration will be subject to a $10 late fee.
