Force license instead of contract a good idea?

Although not heavily enforced, my city requires all dogs and cats to be licensed. My rescues typically are adopted on contract (one I created) but I'm starting to consider license. Instead of signing a contract saying the animals cannot be used in labs or cannot be intentionally harmed and such, what if I just upped the adoption fee $10 (cost of license) and sent in the papers myself?

What do you guys think...good idea or not?

I think it is a great idea for pets to be licenced. It gives them something to have on their collar and a way to track pets and their owners. I honestly don't see a downside to it, and an extra 10 bucks shouldn't deter anyone from adopting from you...And if 10 bucks really means that much to them, well, you get the picture!

If anyone complains about it though, you could always say that that's the law.

It kills me when I get an adopter that says I charge too much. I charged $85 Which covered FeLV/FIV testing, neuter, and vaccinations. My local county charges $81 for neuter, and vaccinations. FeLV/FIV testing is an extra $20.

A friend and her roommate wanted to adopt a kitten (one each) and I said I'd give one to my roommate just because I know and trust her. Her roommate however, I offered half price (which wouldn't even fully cover the cost of a spay) and she is going to possibly decline. I mean I don't even want to consider someone if they won't even take the time to neuter their kittens.
