Pet License

Licensing Your Pets
Per Frederick Municipal Code Section 7-101, dogs and cats owned by residents of the Town of Frederick are required to be licensed annually by March 1st (see Frederick Municipal Code Section 7 for more details).

Dog and cat license fees:
Until March 1st, $5 for altered and unaltered dogs and cats!
After March 1st:
-Dog or cat license, altered (spayed or neutered) - $15.00
-Dog or cat license, unaltered - $30.00

Each application for a pet license can be made at the Frederick Police Department located at 333 5th Street. Please remember to bring a copy of the animal’s rabies vaccination, and make sure it is current. You can also download and fill out the form to bring in.

The pet license and vaccination tag should be attached to the collar worn by the dog or cat at all times. Additionally, the town encourages owners to microchip their pets to aid in identification.

It is the goal of our Community Service Unit to try to return lost pets home to their owners. Licensing or tagging your pet greatly increases the chances that it will be returned to you if it is ever lost, so please stop by to purchase your dog or cat license today!
