Changes Effective January 2nd, 2014

What qualifies for a 3-year License in 2014?

If your dog’s rabies vaccination expires on or after January 1, 2017, you are eligible to purchase a 3-year license for 2014. Throughout 2014, vaccination must be valid for at least 35 months beyond the purchase date of a 3-year license. If one of these two criteria are not met, you would purchase a 1 year license in 2014.
