Currently, the cost of a license for altered animals is $7 for a one year license, $15 for a two year license, and $20 for a three year license. For animals that are not altered, the fee is $30 for a one year license, $60 for a two year, and $90 for a three year license. Dogs must wear their City license at all times.
