In order to license your animal you will need a current rabies vaccination certificate from your veterinarian. If the rabies certificate does not state whether the animal has been altered (spayed/neutered), a certificate of alteration will also need to be provided to receive the reduced fee. 

* Residents 65 years of age and over qualify for a senior fee exemption. The pet owner’s age must be included with the application (i.e., driver’s license, birth certificate). Additionally, the animal must be altered (spayed/neutered) and only one exemption is allotted per residence.
