Dog Licensing


State Law and City Ordinances require all dogs over five months old to be licensed.  Dog owners should get a license within 30 days of:


  • Acquiring a dog that is over five months old
  • The dog turning five months old
  • Moving into the City with the dog


Dog license are $10 for dogs that are not spayed/neutered, and $5 for spayed/neutered dogs.  Licenses are valid until Dec. 31 of each year, regardless of when they were issued.  You have until Mar. 31 to obtain a license for the current year.  Licenses obtained after this date include a $15 late fee per dog.  If you do not obtain a license by March 31, in addition to the $15 late fee, you may be subject to a $98.80 citation. Please let us know if you no longer own a previously licensed dog (see below) to avoid being issued a citation.



Obtain A License

To obtain a license, the dog must have a valid rabies certificate form your veterinarian.  The rabies tag, or an invoice showing the date of the last rabies vaccination is not sufficient.  If you do not have a current rabies certificate, please obtain one from your vet prior to requesting the license.


Please bring or submit the following information:

  1. A completed Dog License Application (click on link below)
  2. A copy of the rabies certificate
  3. Payment of the appropriate fee
  4. If not getting the license in person at City Hall, a self-addressed, stamped envelope so that your license can be mailed back to you.
