Required Paperwork

  1. A current rabies vaccination certificate is required if the rabies vaccination on file has expired or will be expiring soon. Please check your certificate for correct address and pet information.
  2. Proof of spay/neuter, such as a signed statement from a veterinarian or an invoice for services, is required if the pet has been altered since the last licensing period and you are applying for the lower spayed/neutered license fee.
  3. Proof of age, such as a copy of your driver’s license, state ID card, passport or matricula consular, is required to receive the discounted fees for senior citizens age 65 and over.

Your paperwork will not be returned to you, so please retain a copy of your documents for your records.
