PACC new poster dog featured in latest licensing campaign | News
The Pima Animal Care Center is thanking all of Pima County for helping to choose their new ‘poster dog’.
In a recent news release about the campaign PACC thanked residents for choosing Oliver as the poster pup for their new licensing campaign.
The new poster features Oliver, the pooch with the face that launched a campaign, encouraging owners to register their pets. The new Oliver licensing poster touts the importance of complying with the law, as well as keeping their pets safe. PACC stated it was easier to reunite pet with owner when they know where the animal belongs (when licensing pets an address is required).
Poster pup Oliver, even has his own experience being lost. His current owner, Laurie Gaetano, adopted him from PACC May, 2009 after he was picked up off the street in Tucson. Oliver had neither a license or identification tag.
“I'm so excited to see Oliver representing responsible dog ownership,” Gaetano said, in the PACC release. “Having the peace of mind that he is licensed and chipped is priceless. I can't imagine why anyone who loves their pet would not take these measures to increase the odds of their pets' safe and speedy return, should they ever be separated.”
According to PACC the fee for licensing a spayed/neutered pet is only $15.
