New YCSO website offers 1-stop location for dog records

PRESCOTT- Dog owners in Yavapai County now have a free website that helps them manage their pet, courtesy of the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.

ShelterTrack at ycsoaz.sheltertrack.com provides dog owners the ability to obtain licenses, maintain pet records, and even report an animal missing, among other features.

The site allows you to:

• Renew your license online now for the same period as your rabies vaccination. Pay by the year or up to 3 years of the vaccination period via Pay Pal or a credit card through Pay Pal. Documentation of your pet's vaccination may be submitted online by your vet or the account holder.

• Track your animal's medical records including rabies vaccinations history, spayed or neutered documentation and date, veterinarian appointments and services needed. Also, you can record surgeries, injuries or medical needs (warnings, diabetic, medications) and quarantines (home, vet or shelter). Users can update animal ownership or passing (terminates licensing obligation, notices and rabies).

• Receive email notifications on rabies vaccinations, licenses, and veterinarian visits.

• General medical records on your dog are available to you online and to all county veterinarians. Accessible to you while traveling on vacation.

• Use the site to register for a service dog license which, when approved, provides an exemption to licensing fees. Applicants must submit an affidavit justifying service animal classification - per ARS 11-1008F2. Details available to registered users of the Shelter Track web site.

• Appoint secondary people for co-guardianship which allows vet visit verifications, lost and found notification, and licensing.

• Lost and Found web page - with one click of a button, you can label your dog lost and one click of a button to label the dog found. The website can be searched for lost dogs in your area.

• Access to these records by Sheriff's Animal Control officers will aid the officers in the field handling animal related service calls.

County dog licenses will only be issued or renewed with a valid rabies certificate on file. The license period for each animal will be linked to the duration of the rabies certificate.

Dog tag numbers are now permanently assigned to each animal.

To register for your account, simply click on the 'Create a login' link in the left hand menu of the home page at ycsoaz.sheltertrack.com and fill in the requested information.

Some users may find that previously submitted records are already in the system. The entry of remaining records by YCSO personnel is ongoing.

Non-account holders can access limited portions of the website such as the Lost and Found page and Calendar of Events.

If you have any questions about the website content and animal control regulations, please call the YCSO Animal Control Unit, Sgt. Deb Dean at 928-777-7285 or Robin Derrickson at 928-777-3282.

These personnel are available Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
