Dog Licenses 2022

Local ordinances require that every dog over the age of three months that resides in the City must be licensed. The licenses are valid for the calendar year and must be renewed each year. Licenses for 2022 are available in the Office of the City Clerk. The last day to register your dog without a late fee is March 15, 2022.

You may register your dog by mail or in person at the Office of the City Clerk. A mail-in registration form is available. Tear-off registration forms are attached to the annual census form that will be mailed to all residences in early 2022.

You must present a current rabies certificate from a veterinarian at the time of registration.
