As of 7/1/16, dog licenses in the State of Delaware will be valid for 1, 2 or 3 years from the date of purchase.

  • For a 1-year license, your pet’s rabies vaccination must be current at the time of purchase.
  • For a 2-year license, there must be more than 1 year remaining on the rabies vaccination as of the purchase date.
  • For a 3-year license, there must be more than 2 years remaining on the rabies vaccination as of the purchase date.

The cost for licensing unaltered or fertile pets is higher than for licensing spayed or neutered pets in order to promote sterilization and to reduce pet overpopulation and starvation.
