Dog Enumeration Program

Mayor's Message
“Protecting the quality of life in our neighborhoods has been the overriding focus of my administration. These neighborhood reviews are an important part of a comprehensive effort to combat blight and other quality of life issues,” said Mayor Gary McCarthy.

The Dog Enumeration Program kicked off  in 2014 with 12 seasonal employees canvassing the City for unlicensed dogs. Estimates are that only 15-20 percent of dogs in the City are licensed and of those hired in partnership with the 2014 SJTA Summer Youth Employment Program.
