San Rafael has a few rules in place for our furry friends. All dogs are required to have a dog license. This helps other people know your dog is vaccinated and helps you find your pet if they are lost. Unless at a dog park, please keep your dog on a leash when not on your own property. Also a barking dog can be a noise violation so keep Fido happy. And remember, please pick up after your pet. Stepping in that stuff is not awesome.
