Dog License (Tag)
You can buy or renew a dog license at your local veterinarian’s office, at the Animal Services Shelter or at any one of the 311 Service Centers. Dog Licenses are required for all dogs in Miami-Dade County over four months of age.
- The dog license tag must be renewed every year by the anniversary of the month and date of the dog’s most recent rabies vaccine, whether your dog receives the one-year rabies vaccination or the three-year rabies vaccination.
- A valid driver's license or passport will be accepted as identification for the purpose of registering a dog.
A three-year tag must be purchased when three-year vaccine is administered or shortly thereafter with proof of three-year vaccination. Regardless of when the dog license is purchased, the expiration date will coincide with the vaccine expiration date.
