Notice to All Adams County Dog Owners

Notice is hereby given to all dog owners that rabies vaccinations and dog licenses are required under the statutes.

Certificates of current vaccination must be presented when obtaining dog license.  All dogs five (5) months of age or older require a license.

The minimum license fee for neutered males or spayed females is $8.00 upon presentation of evidence that the dog is neutered or spayed and $13.00 for an unneutered male dog or unspayed female dog or one-half of these amounts if the dog became five (5) months of age after July 1 of the license year.

Multiple dog license fees are $35.00 for twelve (12) or fewer dogs and an additional $3.00 for each dog in excess of twelve (12).

Late fees of $5.00 shall be assessed and collected from every owner of a dog five (5) months of age or over if the owner failed to obtain a license prior to April 1.
