Required Paperwork

  1. A current rabies vaccination certificate is required if the rabies vaccination on file has expired. 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 driver’s license or other government issued photo identification is required to receive the discounted fees for senior citizens age 62 and over.

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

Licenses cannot be valid longer than the expiration of your pet’s rabies vaccination, so please verify that you have at least two or three years remaining on your pet’s rabies certificate before applying for a two or three-year license.

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.

Due Date

Payment for your license is due within 60 days of the expiration of your current license. If you are licensing for the first time, you must purchase a license within 30 days of obtaining a dog over the age of 4 months or within 10 days of moving into the City.

A $25 late fee is added to the license fee if your license is not purchased within 60 days of the due date.
