They are so dang cute! But every year you do have to renew their license and pay $10 for your cute canine companions (and the ugly ones, too).

An estimated 87,000 licensed dogs live in our county and the deadline to renew licenses is Tuesday, Jan. 31. The dog license fee is $10 per dog and is good for one year (excluding service dogs, which receive licenses free of charge).

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 🙁

Renewing Your Dog 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 711) or email us at dtadog@fairfaxcounty.gov.
