Pet owners, who have already licensed their pets, should renew the license no later than February 28 of each year. All licenses expire December 31 of each year, regardless of the date the license was obtained.
The fee for a spayed/neutered dog or cat is $17.00; the fee for a non-spayed/non-neutered dog or cat is $20.00. There is a $25.00 late fee for all pets whose licenses are renewed after February 28 of the licensing year.
To obtain a pet license, you must show proof that the animal has a valid rabies vaccination. Per State law, a valid rabies vaccination is one that DOES NOT EXPIRE BEFORE NOVEMBER 1 OF THE LICENSING YEAR. If your pet’s rabies vaccination expires before November 1st of the year in which you are obtaining a license, you must have your pet revaccinated before a license can be issued.
