2013 Dog License Form
Dog License Renewals:
Licenses are due by April 30th of each year. The cost is $15.00 per license for spayed or neutered dogs and $16.00 per license for dogs that are not spayed or neutered. Notices are included in the yearly City census.
No matter whether a dog owner receives a census/notice or not, it is up to the owner of the dog to renew the license on or before the 30th of April. If not, there will be a $10 late fee per dog.
Before any dog license is issued, the rabies information must be current. If you are not sure, please contact your vet. Once you have the current information, you can obtain your license in two ways:
- Come to the City Clerks office
- Mail in a Dog License Application
If mailing in a renewal form, include an additional $1.00 for postage & handling. This will allow for us to be able to send you your dog tag and license.
