Dog Licensing

City residents may now register their dog(s) at the city offices. The cost is the same as the shelter and no revenues go to the City to provide this service.

Cost for Licensing

The cost for licensing is between $15 to $95. The cost depends on how many years you get the license (up to 3 years) and if the dog is spayed or neutered. In order to register your dog you will need documentation that your dog’s rabies vaccination is current and if your dog is spayed or neutered.

The Saratoga Springs Animal Control Officer’s are also equipped with “chip readers” for those of you who have purchased these devices for your dog. Previously we had to go to the shelter to scan the dog to see if they had a chip implanted. It should help in getting more dogs back home to their owners rather than having to take them to the shelter.
