Dog Licenses

Any person owning, possessing or harboring any dog must obtain a current rabies vaccination and a dog license for the dog within thirty (30) days after the dog reaches the age of four (4) months, or, in the case of a dog over four (4) months within thirty (30) days of the acquisition of the dog.

One of the many benefits of a dog license is that it serves as a way to locate your dog if your dog is ever lost.

Anyone who has experienced the anxiety, panic, and sorrow of having lost a dog understands how important it is to license your pet.  Our pets look to us as their owners to provide food, water, shelter, and to bring them back home when they have wandered.  One of the most basic and effective things we can do for our pets is to license them.  A license is an up-to-date, visible identification of your pet that includes many other benefits such as:

  • Identifies your pets and allows you to be quickly reunited with them in case they ever become lost
  • Helps veterinarians contact pet owners should your pet become injured and be in need of life-saving medical treatment
  • Ensures that dogs are vaccinated against rabies, a fatal disease in both animals and humans
  • Saves the owner money on animal control/shelter impound fees
  • A dog license makes it possible for your pet to be returned home without ever having to go to a shelter
  • Assures compliance with Utah State law and therefore forbids a citation for failure to have a license
  • Helps anyone who finds your pet know that your pet has an owner and is not an abandoned animal in need of a new home
  • Allows animal shelters and animal control agencies the ability to attempt to reach the owners
  • Is a key to emergency planning helping owners and pets reunite in the event of separation during an emergency
In short: licensing your dog saves you time, money, heartache, and is your pet’s ticket home.
