Dog License

Reasons for Licensing:

  • Excellent identification. It's your ticket back home. It allows us to notify you when your lost pet is found.
  • It ensures your dog is rabies vaccinated.
  • Provides proof that the dog legally belongs to you.
  • *IT'S THE LAW

A current rabies vaccination certificate, signed by a veterinarian, is required to purchase a license. If you wish to purchase a three year license, a three year rabies vaccination certificate is needed. Licenses for sterilized dogs re less expensive than unsterilized dogs. A Veterinarian's Certificate of Sterilization or a sworn affidavit is required for the sterilized price. A license cannot extend more than 30 days past the expiration of the rabies vaccination. There are no pro-rated three year licenses or refund for any unused portion.
