Animal License Fees

Use this form to obtain an Animal License
Why should you get your dog licensed?
1. If your dog gets lost, a license tag on your dog’s collar is the fastest way to reunite you two. Microchipping is a permanent way to mark your dog, but a license tag is immediately visible to everyone.
2. A visible license, unlike microchipping, lets people know that your dog has received the required vaccinations.
3. The fee you pay for your dog license and license renewal helps to support the animal shelter. The shelter is here to handle the over-population of pets, and hopefully find homes for many of these animals.
If you have questions, you may call a Shelter Assistant at 599-3146 for more information, or send an
