Pet Licensing

Dog Tags

If your dog is more than 4 months old, it must be vaccinated against rabies and be licensed with the City. This is required by Virginia Law and the Code of the City of Colonial Heights. Dog tags are $10.00 or $2.00 for spayed or neutered dogs.

Cat Tags

As of November 1, 1997, the City of Colonial Heights passed an ordinance that requires cats to obtain a city cat tag. Cat tags are $10.00 or $2.00 for spayed or neutered cats.

Kennel Tags

Kennel tags are $50.00 for 10 or less animals and $100.00 for 11 or more animals.

After Due Date

Dog and cat tags purchased after the due date (February 1) will be assessed a 25% late fee.

Two-Year and Three-Year Tags

Two-year and three-year tags are now available. They can be purchased for both cats and dogs, if the rabies vaccination is good for at least the number of years from date of purchase of tag. Please call (804) 520-9320 for more information regarding the sale of three-year tags.
