    $60 per year 
    - Certificate of Sterilization - $20 per year
    - Senior citizens - $7.50 per year; this fee will be reimbursed upon approval by the City when the resident brings proof of payment (as well as the dog's proof of sterilization) to the Finance Department.
  • A $40 penalty fee is charged for failure to license a dog or cat when the license lapses beyond the annual expiration date or the pet was not previously licensed.
