Pet Licenses (question for city dwellers)

I guess I'm looking for an explanation on the level of a 5 year old...

This doesn't apply to me anymore as I live out in the sticks but most cities, municipalities, towns, ect. require a yearly license to keep a dog or a cat. This license, typically between $10-20 per pet, is to be renewed every year. The proceeds of this license go to whatever municipality collects it to "pay for" animal control services.

It isn't as if the municipality is creating some sort of pet registry and upon seeing your escaped dog they simply return it to your home. No, you have to go and pay money to get it out of pet jail.

What I am not understanding...

Animal Control is a public service, right? If so... shouldn't my state income, property, and sales tax cover that public service?

Why do people have to pay the state to keep a pet?

Bonus question: How many people actually pay for it?

Pretty soon, if things keep getting so overcrowded, people licenses might be necessary.

I'd say it's a way to put a bit more of the burden of paying for services that might involve domestic animals on those who actually own the domestic animals.

Shawnee used to charge $5/yr to license a dog. Then 5-10 years ago they stopped.

It's just another way for them to steal money from people, that's all it is.

People who have pets often have issues. Those that have a dog they say is something they must have on a plane or in hotels are the worst.

Makes perfect sense to have a pet licensed. Dont you have to vaccinate as well? Been a long time since I had a dog.

Does this mean you had issues, that are now gone?
