Dog tag deadline Feb. 1

Dog owners are reminded the 2014 dog tags need to be on dogs by Feb. 1, said Halifax County Treasurer Linda S. Foster.  

In order to purchase tags, owners need to bring original dog rabies vaccination certificates that are issued by a licensed veterinarian firm. Anyone with questions regarding expiration dates on certificates are asked to call the treasurer’s office at 434-476-3318.  

Dogs that are 4 months of age need to be vaccinated and tagged, and tags must be purchased each year, Foster said.  

State law pertaining to any violations are handled through the Animal Control Officer.

Owners can purchase regular tags for $10 each at the county treasurer’s office in the Mary Bethune office complex in Halifax.  Owners also may mail in original vaccination certificates with fee to the Halifax County Treasurer’s Office, P. O. Box 825, Halifax, VA 24558. Dog tags and vaccination papers will be mailed back to the owners.  

Kennel tags also are sold in Halifax for $50. 

The treasurer’s office is opened Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
