Dog License Price Schedule

After many requests from dog owners, we recently switched to a three-year license system.  The licenses expire at the end of the month the rabies vaccination expires, instead of all licenses expiring at the end of the year. By doing this, we spread the renewals throughout the year rather than having everyone renewing in the same few months. This also requires only about a third of dog owners to renew each year.

The following rates apply:

  • Three-year licenses can be purchased for $30.00 for sterile dogs or $60.00 for non-sterile dogs.
  • Two-year licenses will be $20.00 for sterile dogs or $40.00 for non-sterile dogs.
  • One-year licenses will be $10.00 for sterile dogs or $20.00 for non-sterile dogs.

* Owners need to present proof of rabies vaccination when purchasing a dog license.

Kennel Licenses

Less than 10 dogs, $55, 10 to 20 dogs $75
* Kennel owners need to present approval papers from Animal Control when purchasing kennel licenses.
