Dog License

Why license my dog?

Following the example set by the County of Humboldt, the license will now be due at the same time of year your dog received its rabies vaccination.

The license fee is $50 per dog, however only $15 per dog if it is spayed or neutered ($10 for seniors 65 and older).

Since the rabies vaccination for older dogs is good for three years, but your dog license must be paid annually, city staff will mail out an annual reminder during the month your dog's license is due. For example, if the rabies vaccination was given in October, your dog's annual license fee is due in October. You may also purchase a 3-year license if you wish, if the rabies vaccination is valid for three years.

The City license tag is now valid for the life of the dog. The tag is stamped "Expires Annually with Rabies". A replacement tag can be purchased for $5.00 if the original tag gets lost.

Licenses may be obtained on the first floor of City Hall at 531 K Street Eureka, between the hours of 9:00am and 4:00pm. Please bring proof of current vaccination, as well as proof of spay/neuter. For further information, you may call (707) 441-4120.
