Have you registered your pet?
Davidson requires pet owners to register their animals every January.
The cost is $10 per animal, and proof of rabies vaccination is required. For owners 63 and older, pet registration is free.
About 20 pets were reported missing to the Davidson Police Department last year. Registering your pet is the quickest way to ensure its safe return, town officials said in issuing a reminder last week about the required registration.
Pets without identification are taken to the Mecklenburg County Animal Control facility.
