If you're a dog owner, this week is the time to make sure Fido is up to date with the City of Fairfax.
All dogs four months or older living in the town must be licensed annually and vaccinated against rabies. (Dogs living in Fairfax County jurisdiction, must apply for separate licenses).
Each dog tag, $5 for spayed/neutered and $10 otherwise, can be obtained by presenting a vaccination certificate from a licensed vet. They must be securely attached to a collar and worn whenever the dog is off the owner's property.
Have a cat? While the pets must be inoculated against rabies, they don't need city licenses.
How to apply: Stop by the Treasurer's Office at City Hall to fill out some information. You can also get the office to mail you an application by filling out this form.
For more information, contact the Animal Warden at 703-385-7924.
