Suspecting a Scam
I'm not sure how this all works just yet but my initial inquiries suggest a scam. You can't take your dog to a dog park (dog friendly area) in Chicago without a permit. Permits are only issued by 'participating veterinarians' who seem to only give out permits to their clients. This might not be a strict rule, I'm still checking. I have a dog who was vaccinated outside Cook County but has a Chicago dog license. I have to acquire a permit for him to enter a dog friendly area or risk a $500 fine. I'm guessing the 'participating veterinarians' supported this recently enacted law.
