Got Dog Tags?!

by Neil McElroy
(Eugene Oregon)


My name is Neil McElroy ~ I am a member of ISALC (the International Society of Animal License Collectors). We are always looking for newly discovered DOG TAX tag and DOG LICENSE tag finds. We keep record of all known pre-1900 tags and oldest known tags from all issuing agencies (State, county, township,city/town, etc.).

Have you dug up an old dog tag (not military I.D. "dog tags")? PLEASE e-mail me pictures and info on where it was found ~ . If you have a new O.K. (oldest known) or any newly reported tag then I will forward the info to the author of US DOG LICENSE TAGS Dr. William Bone. He will record the info and reflect it in the future printings of his book!

Thank you!
