Rabies tags are not just a requirement--they come with their own benefits! Dogs sporting collars with tags can be returned to their owners faster, avoiding extra fines and stressful kennel stays at our facility. In addition, if your dog bites another animal or person, they may be eligible for home quarantine instead of coming to us or a veterinarian. Our facility is also run primarily on registration fees--so your tags are helping a stray or homeless pet get the best care we can provide and a new family!
State law requires that all dogs be vaccinated against rabies and registered with the county they live in beginning at 4 months of age. Rabies tags are available at many local vets, however should you need to register directly with us please mail a copy of your rabies certificate along with a check payable to Douglas County Animal Control for the following amount (as applicable):
1-Year Altered $10.00 3-Year Altered $20.00 1-Year Unaltered $20.00 3-Year Unaltered $50.00 *Seniors (65+) may receive up to 2 altered tags free
