Pet Licensing and Fees
All dogs must be licensed within thirty days of
the dog reaching the age of 4 months or within 5 days if 4 months
old by someone eighteen of age or older. Licenses may be obtained
at the City offices. A maximum of two dogs is allowed at any one
residence unless a residential or commercial kennel license is
obtained. A maximum of two cats is allowed at any one residence.
This may be in addition to the legally licensed dogs.
Washington City requires that all dogs have current rabies vaccination. But we recommend full vaccination ("5in1") for better general pet health. The Washington Family Family Veterinary Clinic offers a one stop Licensing and Vaccination. They can be reached at 627-1300 or 969 N 3050 E in Washington.
