You need proof of rabies vaccination and spay/neuter certificate in order to license dog. Check their web site for a listing of vet offices where licensing can be obtained.
Keep house collars (clip or buckle type) with ID tags on your dogs at all times.
If your hound becomes lost, call SA Greys IMMEDIATELY at 520-955-7421. We can begin a search. The SA Greys tag that comes with each of our adopted hounds has our phone number and a unique ID number. A rescuer can call us with that ID and we can retrieve your contact information.
Please DO NOT use a retractable leash when walking your dog. We recommend a Martingale style collar for walking. Watch our friend Michelle Caillet (owner of Greyt Escape) demonstrate a Martingale collar.
