Does my pet(s) have to have rabies vaccinations?

(10-1-6)  All dogs and cats over three (3) months of age within the city shall be vaccinated against rabies once each year by a licensed veterinarian, who will issue to the owner a durable metal tag and a certificate of vaccination approved by the Animal Control Authority. Tags must be attached to the collar or harness of the dog or cat and be worn at all times. Tags are not transferable from one dog or cat to another dog or cat.

The health officer and the Animal Control Authority may adopt such other rabies control regulations as they deem necessary for the protection of the public health and safety.
