*Licenses will only be valid for a term equal to or less than the remaining duration of the pet’s current rabies vaccination.

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.

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. Owners age 62 and over with a spayed or neutered pet may receive a discounted license fee by indicating the owner’s age or date of birth on the license application.
  4. A valid microchip number is required in addition to proof of spay/neuter and a current rabies certificate to receive a lifetime cat registration. Microchip information for dogs and cats not receiving lifetime registration will be recorded as a courtesy to the pet owner and is not required.

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