Dog Licenses & Tags

Lifetime licenses are available for purchase at the Stafford County Animal Shelter and the Stafford County Treasurers office. These lifetime tags replaced the 1 and 3 year tags but did not replace kennel tags.  




As of July 1, 2007 veterinarians are required to report to the Treasurer of the locality in which they practice within 45 days of giving a rabies vaccine.  The Code of Virginia (3.1-796.87:1) mandates the Treasurer to transmit an application to all dog owners that have not purchased a dog license within 90 days of the rabies vaccination.  Failure to purchase a dog license within 30 days of receipt of the application requires the Treasurer's Office to notify Animal Control of the unlicensed animal.
