Cat licensing is not mandatory, however, every person owning or having custody of any dog four months of age or older must license the dog within 15 days of acquisition or 15 days after the license becomes due. Proof of a state-approved rabies vaccination is needed to obtain a license.
Discounted licensing fees are offered for sterilized dogs with a copy of a sterility certificate signed by a veterinarian licensed to practice in the state. Senior citizen discount fees are offered with proof of dog’s sterility certificate and a copy of any document showing the birth date of the person (i.e., driver’s license, state ID, or birth certificate). Only one senior citizen license discount allowed per household.
A no charge license is provided for guide dogs with proof of certification. All licenses must be renewed annually.
