License Your Dog!
Licenses are vital for your dog's safe return should he or she wander off. All license fees go to the Humane Society to care for the cats and dogs in need.
It is the law that all dogs over 6 months old in both the city and the county have a valid license. Your licensed dog can be reunited with you quickly. The cost of your dog being our guest is much steeper than the small license fee. Proof of rabies vaccination is required by the county, a small hassle but worthwhile. The city is still discussing but likely will require proof of rabies shots in the fall of 2016.
Licenses good for two (2) years:
- $20.00 - Sterilized (Spayed/Neutered) dog with proof of spaying or neutering.
- $48.00 - Unsterilized dog
- $112.00 - Sterilized (Spayed/Neutered) dog with proof of spaying or neutering.
- $266.00 - Unsterilized dog
