 GRAND COUNTY ANIMAL CONTROL REMINDS PUBLIC TO LICENSE DOGS

GRAND COUNTY, CO- The Grand County Animal Control reminds the public that the 2021 county tags for dog licenses are available. Tags must be purchased annually in January, although they are available year-round. Per county ordinance, all dogs in Grand County even those in foster care, must be registered and display a current rabies tag and county tag at all times. 

 The cost for tags is $5.00 for a fixed dog and $10.00 for an intact dog. The public can purchase county tags at all of the town halls, all local veterinarians with the exception of Colburn, and at the Grand County Animal Shelter located at 3475 Co Rd. 57 in Granby. Owners should contact the location of their choosing regarding payment methods available. Owners need to show proof of current rabies vaccination in order to be able to purchase a county tag. 

Unfortunately, the reality of dogs sometimes becoming lost does happen even in our community. While mandated, registering your dog is also an act of love that gives responders a better chance to reunite a lost pet with their family. The information you provide when registering your dog is a lifeline. We understand that pets are members of a family and deserve as much protection as we can give them. If you believe that your pet is lost or have found a lost pet call the Animal Shelter at 970-887-2988. 

The Animal Shelter also offers a tag engraver with the ability to personalize your pet’s name and contact phone number. The cost for small tags is $6.00 and $8.00 for large tags. Appointments to make a pet tag can be made by calling the Animal Shelter. 

 Grand County Pet Pals is the supportive arm of the Grand County Animal Shelter. It is the local organization dedicated to responsible pet ownership, animal health and supports the spay and neuter of pets in Grand County. 

 Anyone with questions is encouraged to call the Grand County Animal Shelter at 970-887-2988.
