Required Paperwork

Required for All Pets:

  • Current rabies vaccination certificate: A current rabies vaccination is required in order to license your pet. Unless we have a current vaccination certificate already on file, a current certificate must be submitted. Please check your certificate for correct address and pet information.

Required for Discounted License Fees:

  • Proof of Spay or Neuter is required if you are applying for the lower spayed/neutered license fee. Proof can be a signed statement from a veterinarian or an invoice for services. Once this proof is on file, it will not be required for each license renewal.
  • Proof of age is required to receive the discounted fees for senior citizens age 65 and over. A photocopy of any document showing the owner’s name and date of birth, such as a driver’s license or ID card, is acceptable. Any personal or sensitive identification numbers may be removed from the copy prior to submission.
  • Proof of disability status is required to receive the discounted fees for disabled persons. A photocopy of any document showing that the pet owner receives disability benefits under Social Security or an equivalent disability retirement program is acceptable to meet this requirement.
  • Proof of registered service animal is required for a new service dog license. The owner of a service animal must provide documentation of the animal being registered with a service animal registry. Service dogs must be actually being used to act as a guide for the blind or deaf in order to qualify for the discount.

Note: Please send legible copies of your paperwork and maintain a copy for your records.
