A dog license will protect your pet

For many of us, our pets are our family – we can’t imagine not seeing them every day. But what happens when your pet gets lost, stolen or runs away? Registering your pet can help in these situations.


Plus, it’s the law

Every person who owns, keeps or harbors a dog more than three months of age shall file an application for registration. Registration must be done within 30 days of acquiring a new dog. Dog licenses cost $14 per dog, annually.

Dog registrations must be renewed annually, December 1st through January 31st. Failure to renew a license during this time will result in a $14 late fee, per dog. If your dog is already licensed, a renewal application will already be mailed to you from the Fiscal Office.
