Pet Licensing

All dogs in unincorporated Summit County and the Towns of Blue River, Dillon, and Silverthorne are required to wear a current license tag. Cat licenses are voluntary.

Licenses ensure that pets are vaccinated against rabies as proof of rabies vaccination is required to purchase a license. Licensing your dog may keep it from making an unnecessary trip to the Animal Shelter as it provides a way of tracing the dog back to you. It can also help locate you in the event your pet is injured and treatment needs to be authorized.
