Dog and cat owners are required to license each animal. This is part of responsible animal ownership and providing premium care for your pet. Licensing your animal allows the City to track its animal population, producing better-informed public policies and enabling staff to contact you with pertinent information regarding your pet, if necessary.
The annual fee for licensing a neutered or spayed animal is $10. The fee for non-neutered or spayed animal is $15. You can pay these fees at your vet's office or at City Hall, 611 Mulberry Rd.
Your area veterinarian should be able to accommodate your licensing needs or you can get a license at your convenience at Derby City Hall, 611 Mulberry. If the animal is six months or older, proof of rabies vaccination must be shown at the time of licensing. Licenses must be renewed annually, so mark your calendar!
