Persons desiring to obtain a dog license must have a rabies certificate for their dogs that are 4 months or older. Upon payment of the fees (listed below), a metallic tag and license certificate with corresponding numbers will be furnished for each dog. The fees are as follow:






Senior Unaltered:


Senior Altered:


Late fee is 50% of license fee. Senior is any person over 62 years of age. Tag replacement fee is $10.00.


Cats are currently not required to be licensed.

To avoid legal proceedings and additional fines, please obtain a dog license and rabies vaccination for each dog four months of age or older, with a maximum of three dogs per address. It is a misdemeanor if you fail to license your dog. Dog licenses must be renewed annually.
  • Fee is reduced at the time of licensing or renewal if the dog has been altered, however, you must submit a spay/neuter certificate.
  • A 50% penalty will be automatically added to the license fee on all licenses not received for renewal by July 31st of the year due.
  • State and local regulations require that all dogs be kept on a leash (six feet in length maximum) and under direct control of the person in charge while on any public street or property.
  • Please help us by caring for your pet. Keep them vaccinated, licensed, and on a leash.
