Dogs in Washington County must be licensed. Licenses may cost less if you buy several years at one time; if your dog is spayed or neutered; or if you are at least 65 years old with a spayed or neutered dog. You may need to provide proof that you are eligible for these lower costs.
You must provide proof of a current rabies vaccination for your dog for the license to be valid. Your veterinarian can provide you with this proof.
