A Missoula County dog license is your furry friend’s ticket home. More than 1,500 animals are sheltered every year at the Missoula County Animal Control Shelter, and some of those have trouble finding their way back home. Licensing your dog will help them get home to you sooner if they get lost because their tag number can be traced to your address. Through licensing fees, you’re supporting Missoula County Animal Control so they can investigate animal abuse and cruelty cases, respond to over 3,500 calls and investigate nearly 150 animal bites each year, and providing the best care possible at the shelter for Missoula’s animals in need. Licensing your dog also ensures that your dog is current on his or her rabies vaccination. To license your dog, contact Missoula County Animal Control at 406-541-7387 or license them online.

December 2020

The City of Missoula Police Department has some tips for keeping our roads safe from impaired drivers. Plan a safe ride home before the celebration – designate a sober driver and give that person your keys. Expect your friends and family to have a sober driver and let them know it. Provide safe transportation for your party guests—as well as non-alcoholic beverages. Call 9-1-1 to report an impaired driver. The best defense against a drunk driver is wearing a seatbelt – everyone, every trip, and every time; there is no good excuse not to.
