Dog Licensing

License Information:

If you received a dog license renewal notice in the mail, click here to renew online.

New licenses cannot be done online at this time. To register a new dog, fill out the Dog License Application Form and mail to the address on the form.

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

  • 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.

All Dog Licenses issued by or on behalf of the City of Meridian are valid for one year from the date of purchase. While the tag number is valid for the life of the dog, you must renew annually in order for the tag number to remain current.
