Meridian City Dog Licensing 2016  

Meridian City Code 6-2-3 requires that all dog owners within the City obtain a
license for their dogs. The license must be renewed yearly. The 2016 dog
licenses are now available for you to purchase for your dog. Dogs living
within the City of Meridian that are over 6-months old must be licensed each
calendar year. Dog licensing ensures that dogs living within the City are
rabies vaccinated and also enable Animal Control Officers to reunite dogs with
their owners in a timely manner if they are found loose.  


The items you will need to obtain your dog's license are:

-Proof of rabies vaccination with a copy of a shot record and/or receipt from the veterinarian.
-Proof of spay/neuter (if applicable) with a receipt for the procedure and/or documentation from a veterinarian.
-Check, cash, or money order for the appropriate amount. 


License Fees Per Dog:

$16.00 - Spay or Neutered (must include proof)
$21.00 - Non-Spay or Non-Neutered


In an effort to make it as convenient as possible, there are several locations to purchase a dog license or you can click here to print out a form and order your dog tags via mail.
