Veterinary clinics and pet dealers can request bulk tags on consignment.
Tags requests may be submitted via [email protected] or phone. Tag orders via email is a service only available for veterinary clinics that receive their orders in bulk.
Upon receiving your order, please make sure to verify the information on your consignment form matches the items delivered. A five-day window is provided to report any shortage. After the five-day period, missing tags will be invoiced at the full value they represent. The fee will only be waived if it is accompanied by a police report noting theft of inventory.
Use the Returned Tags form to return any obsolete licenses once new fiscal year licenses are issued. Returned tags are to be forwarded no later than the first of November of each year.
All unaccounted licenses will be invoiced at the full value.
The one-year rabies tag, at $30 for a sterilized dog and $60 for an intact dog, is not changing. Dog owners may chose to continue to purchase a tag each year.
License expiration date will coincide with the one-year vaccine expiration date regardless of license purchase date.
The three-year tag is gold and can only be purchased at the time the three year vaccine is given. Stations that do not administer the three-year vaccine are not required to carry the three-year tag. As such, you may return the box the tags to our office. Please send an email to [email protected] and we will arrange for its pickup. The tag number is prefixed with the letter "T." The cost is three times the fee of the one-year tag for a total of $90 for a sterilized dog and $180 for an intact dog.
Veterinary clinics may charge up to a 20 percent surcharge per license tag sold.
