Meridian City Dog Licensing 2015 

Meridian City Code 6-2-3 requires that all dog owners within the city obtain a license for their dogs.  The license must be renewed yearly. The 2015 dog licenses are now available for you to purchase for your dog.  Dogs living within the City of Meridian that are over 6-months old must be licensed each calander year.  Dog licensing ensures that dogs living within the City are rabies vaccinated and also enable Animal Control Officers to reunite dogs with their owners in a timely manner if they are found loose.


The items you will need to obtain your dog's license are:

Proof of rabies vaccination with a copy of a shot record and/or receipt from the veterinarian.

Proof of spay/neuter (if applicable) with a copy of a receipt for the procedure and/or documentation from a veterinarian.

Check, cash or money order for the appropriate amount.

License Fees Per Dog:
$16.00 - Spay or Neutered (must include proof)

$21.00 - Non-Spay or Non-Neutered


In an effort to make it as convenient as possible to buy a license, we have several location options for license purchasing or you can click here to print out a form to order your dog tags through the mail.
