Yes! All dogs and cats four months of age or over shall be licensed. This is a red Texas shaped tag and is different than the rabies tag. This helps us get your pet back home faster in case your pet gets lost. We can easily look up the tag number in our data system and reunite you with your pet before even bringing them to the shelter. Your pet has to have a current rabies vaccination in order to get their City licenses.. City licenses run concurrently with the rabies vaccination of your pet. Currently, the cost of a license for altered animals is $7 for a one year license, $15 for a two year license, and $20 for a three year license. For animals that are not altered, the fee is $30 for a one year license, $60 for a two year, and $90 for a three year license. Dogs must wear their City license at all times.
