All dogs that live in Eagle County for two weeks or more during the year are required by law to be licensed with Eagle County Animal Services. These licenses must be renewed each year and are good for the calendar year only. If you license your dog between December 1 and January 31, we offer a discounted rate of $5 for spayed or neutered dogs and $10 for dogs that are not spayed or neutered. Beginning February 1, the licenses go to $10 for spayed or neutered dogs and $20 for dogs that are not spayed or neutered. You must provide proof of current rabies vaccination in order to acquire the license. This license becomes a very helpful tool in reuniting owners with their pets in case a dog becomes lost as well. A completed Dog License Application must be submitted to Animal Services with your proof of vaccination.
Cat licensing is not required in Eagle County, but you may purchase a cat license for $5 if you want added protection for you pet.
