I just found out today that I have to renew Angel's silver license and that when I do it will be good until Dec. 2004, does this mean that I have to renew it every year? Also, what does that tag do? It's the tag with the county name, Larimer County, CO, and then it has the number of the Humane Society, and it has some numbers above the word "license", what is that number for? Thanks so much for the help! :)

license/tag

Well, having lived in Larimer County, CO, for the four years of vet school (I'm right down the road in Boulder County now!), I can tell you exactly what the little number is for. It is the registration number that identifies the animal. If someone finds the cat, they can call the Humane Society (at the number conveniently stamped on the tag), give them that registration number, and they look up your license in their files to find *your* contact information. I returned a lot of lost dogs that way when I lived up there! :)

License tags are renewed every year. Current proof of rabies is required. However, if the rabies vaccine given to your cat was a 3-year, then you only have to get the license, not a new vaccine, every year. It's a lot like our car emissions stickers--on a new car, the emissions sticker is good for 2 years, so even though you can skip the test, you still have to pay for registration every year.

Cheers,
Dr. Jean
