Animal licenses are required for all dogs and cats 4 months and older. It is the means by which Animal Service Officers regulate and keep current the rabies vaccinations in our pet population. Rabies is a deadly virus that requires immediate treatment (more information about rabies).
In order to receive a license each animal must have a current rabies vaccination. All license applications must include a copy of the rabies vaccination certificate issued by a licensed veterinarian. Because a valid certificate must be presented to an Animal Service official, online registration cannot be offered.
Application may be made through the mail or in person at the Sandy City Animal Shelter.
