DOG LICENSE

IMPORTANT: State Law requires that all dogs FOUR (4) MONTHS OLD OR OLDER must have a certificate of rabies vaccination. The vaccine shall be licensed by the United States Department of Agriculture for use in that species and shall be administered by a currently licensed veterinarian. The certificate of vaccination must be signed by the veterinarian and include the veterinarian’s license number and expiration date of the vaccination. Dog licenses go on sale in October for the upcoming year and county tags expire December 31st of each year.

THERE IS NO REQUIRED APPLICATION FORM, HOWEVER YOU ARE REQUIRED TO FURNISH A CURRENT RABIES CERTIFICATE.
