Dog License Applications and Renewals Due Jan. 31

puppies

Woof!

An estimated 87,000 licensed dogs live in our county and it’s time to renew their licenses by Jan. 31. The dog license fee is $10 (excluding service dogs, which receive licenses free of charge) and is good for one year.

After we receive your information and fee, you will be mailed a license tag for your dog’s collar.

All dogs four months old and up must be licensed. Here’s what you need to do by the deadline, including if your dog passed away this year (we’re very sorry).

 

Renewing Your License

If you are renewing your dog license, you should have received a renewal notice in the mail in November. On that notice is your registration number and previous license number. You will need that information to renew your license and pay online. If you don’t have that information handy, contact the Department of Tax Administration at 703-222-8234 (TTY 703-222-7594) or email us at dtadog@fairfaxcounty.gov.
