Door to Door Ticketing for Dog Owners without a License

by Associated Press posted Jun 23 2012 1:05PM
  FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Officials in one Michigan county have sent out a small army of enforcers to go door to door to find dogs that don't have a license.
 
     The Genesee County Animal Control Department says the crackdown could raise more than $250,000 in fees this summer. It has 18 full-time workers who will sell licenses on the spot or write tickets.
 
     Chief animal control officer Walt Rodabaugh tells The Flint Journal (http://bit.ly/MfgUWd ) that some residents haven't seen someone from his department in decades and many roads "have never been touched before."
 
     More than 1,700 dog owners bought licenses during a two-week amnesty when delinquent fees were waived.
 
     Workers traveling in pairs are told to report houses where dogs are inside but no one answers the door.
