Dog License Information

How to License a Dog

You may use this form, but it is not required.

Or you can apply online at UniPay.

Dog licenses must be renewed annually beginning on January 1st. Dogs not licensed by May 1st will incur a $25 late fee, in addition to the license fee.

Bring, or mail a Certificate of Rabies Vaccination, which contains the following information:

  • Rabies tag number
  • Date of rabies vaccination expiration
  • Proof of spay/neuter (if applicable)

Please do not bring the Invoice - this paperwork does not contain sufficient information to license your pet.

  • Licenses for Spayed/Neutered pets are $10.
  • Licenses for Non-Spayed/Non-Neutered pets are $15.

You may also request a pet license by mail: Please include your check, certificate of rabies vaccination, spay/neuter paperwork, and a self-addressed, stamped, business-size envelope to:
