As pet parents, our prime concern is the health & well-being of the pet. However, in the hustle of life, we often forget to meet our responsibilities & our pets have to bear the consequences.
Getting a Pet License may seem like a bit of extra work at first, but
Here’s Why You Should Get a Pet License -
1. It is mandatory
According to GHMC, it is mandatory to have a Pet License for Pet owners in Hyderabad & renew it every year. If you don't have a license in the future, you may be fined as much as Rs 50,000.
2. Vaccination proof
You do not want your pet to be trouble for others, so vaccinating your pets on time is a must. Pet Licenses are official proof that your pet has been given anti-rabies vaccination & will also alert you of further vaccinations.
3. To find your lost pet
Most importantly, this license may also come to your rescue if you lose your pet. It is much easier for officials to locate your pet when they have access to its identity.
The best part is that you don't have to visit an offline centre or wait in long queues to register your pet; it can be done online quickly in a few steps.
In Hyderabad, Pet Licenses are issued by GREATER HYDERABAD MUNICIPAL CORPORATION (GHMC)
