[ARCHIVED] Local Celebrities Campaign to License Our Four-legged Eugeneans

It’s estimated that of Eugene’s approximately 40,000 dogs, only 40 percent are licensed. With the help of local celebrities, the City of Eugene Animal Services Program is launching a campaign aimed at increasing the number of licensed dogs. Local celebrities and their pooches posed for pictures as part of the campaign and are encouraging community members to license “their Eugenean.” Celebrities include Bev Smith of Kidsports, Storm Kennedy and Steve Tannen of KUGN, staff of Ninkasi Brewing, the former reigning Slug Queen Marie Slugtoinnette, UO Alumni Director Tim Clevenger, and Eugene Chamber of Commerce President Dave Hauser.

There’s easy online look up and 9-1-1 call takers with access to license information to help Eugene dogs found with a current license get returned home faster by a good samaritan or animal welfare officer. Although dogs are required to be licensed by law, many community members don’t realize that the revenue from licensing sales helps provide services to Eugene’s lost, hurt and neglected animals.

The average cost of a one year dog license is $15. Licenses can be obtained in person at most local veterinary offices and the 1st Avenue Public Shelter; or online and by phone through PetData at 855-328-1400 or www.petdata.com/eugene.
