If you are, and you live within the City limits, you must file for your dog's license by Feb. 1.
Licenses are required for all dogs 4 months of age and older, and all dogs must be vaccinated against rabies.
Licenses are $5 per year for spayed or neutered dogs, or $10 per year for unaltered dogs.
Dogs not wearing a 2014 license tag by Feb. 1 will be in violation of City Code, and owners will be subject to a fine, said City officials.
Dog owners may purchase multi-year licenses that are valid for the same length of time as the dog's rabies certification.
To apply for a license, a dog's owner must present a valid rabies certificate for each dog and, if applicable, a neutered/spayed certificate from the dog’s veterinarian (required for first-time licenses only).
Licenses may be purchased in person at the Treasurer’s Office in City Hall, 10455 Armstrong St.
Applications also may be submitted on the City’s website.
For information, call 703-385-7900.
