Are dogs required to wear their rabies tags when on public property?

Jim Ware


According to Lt. B.C. Evers of the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, the answer is no.  They are not required to wear the tag, but the owner should however keep the tag for reference if needed.


Where can I find a rabies map?

Why must a family pet’s brain be tested for rabies if it bites its owner and then dies?
