Do any of you have a similar arrangement with Vets??
Yes, so people who care for colonies (groups of feral cats that have been trapped, sterilized and returned) and who don't work through a TNR program, are really in a pickle. If they take cats to one of these vets, they are basically punished (fined) for taking on the burden to fix the cats. If they don't take cats to the vet, obviously they are not providing really adequate care. Our program provides for retrapping and vet visits for sick colony cats. So far that works well, and caretakers have not been hounded. But, "indy" caretakers have shared copies of the letters.

In our area, I think SOOOO few people take their *pets* to the vet regularly, that this approach doesn't reach all that many animals. But, I guess it is something. Next step is to make license fees actually offer a real return for cat owners!

We DO have differential license fees, and I don't think anyone has objected that it's discriminatory. (We are one of the places with a Pit Bull Ban too ...) Then again, I think, we are not a hotbed of breeder activity, either, other than the Pennysaver posters and "ooops" litter types.

Yes, we have a similar arrangement. Every month the vets in the county mail us their rabies ceritficates or, sometimes the ACO's have to pick them up, and then all of the info is inputted into Chameleon as a "vac cert" in Chameleon. This way mailers can be sent out to the dog owners or our licensing canvassers can follow up in person and charge lots more fees for not licensing on time. I don't really agree with it. it doesn't seem like fair play to me.

Fayetteville, AR - currently its $5 for s/n animals and $15 for unaltered
A new proposed city ord. will make it $75 for unnaltered. The license fees will go directly into a low cost s/n clinic.

And I is not discrimination. It is an incentive. If it is discrimination, wouldn't it be discrimination to offer senior citizen discounts??
I find your breeder's permit very interesting, as our law states that you need a breeders permit only if you have more than 1 litter a year.

Monterey County, CA
$40 1 yr unaltered
$50 2 yr unaltered
$60 3 yr unaltered
$10 1 yr altered
$15 2 yr altered
$20 3 yr altered
$9 sr discount only if altered for 1-3 years (however long the vacc is good for)

We also charge a $20 late fee if you're 1 day or 10 yrs late I know it's stupid.

Oh here:
Whoa whoa whoa, Miss Lippy. The part of the story I don't like is that the little boy gave up looking for Happy after an hour. He didn't put posters up or anything, he just sat on the porch like a goon and waited. That little boy's gotta think 'You got a pet. You got a responsibility.' If your dog is lost you don't look for an hour then call it quits. You get your butt out there and you find that dog.
