Animal Licenses

Licensing Dogs and Cats:

All cats and dogs residing in Norfolk are required to have a license once they reach the age of 4 months.  A current rabies certificate is required in order to obtain a license.  Additionally, documentation that your animal has been spayed or neutered is required in order to receive the reduced rate.  Pet owners who are 55 and older do qualify for the senior rate, if their pet has been spayed or neutered, and documentation has been provided.  Norfolk supports spaying and neutering programs and is proud to provide a discount when purchasing a license.  You can obtain a license at any location listed below.
