Dog Licensing

Arizona state law and city code require that all dogs maintained within city limits be licensed annually. Proof of rabies vaccination is required to obtain a license. If your dog is spayed or neutered, proof of sterilization is also required.

Licenses are issued based on your dog’s rabies vaccination status and can be issued for up to a maximum of three years. A reduced license fee is applied when you renew your dog’s license for multiple years.

Annual Dog Licensing Fees:

  • Intact $20 per dog
  • Spayed/Neutered $5 per dog

* There is a $2.00 discount per animal for pet owners 62 years of age or older.
