A registration fee of $14.00 must be paid with the application for each dog registered. The information necessary for registration is age, sex, spayed or neutered, color, length of hair, breed of the dog and the name, address and phone number of the owner. A kennel fee of $70.00 must be paid with the application for each kennel registered and additional tags are available for $1.00 each for kennels with more than five dogs.
**RECENT CHANGE** Dogs may be registered for a 1 year or 3 year term or a permanent license (for the dog’s life). When completing the application, choose your “Term” (1 Year, 3 Year or Permanent). Fees are: 1 Year License =$14.00, 3 Year License =$42.00 and Permanent License =$140.00. No Refunds Permitted
Penalty fees will be collected on registrations received after January 31, in the amount equal to the registration fee for each type of license. Therefore the penalty would be $14.00 for regular licenses and $70.00 for kennel licenses in addition to the regular registration fee.
Persons acquiring dogs after January 31 have 30 days after the date of acquisition or the date that the dog reaches three months of age to register with the Auditor’s Office.
