[ARCHIVED] New Year Means New Pet License

Pet Licenses NewsFlash

Pet License PosterAll 2018 Routt County dog and cat licenses expired December 31, 2018 and new 2019 licenses are required to be purchased by January 31.

All dogs and cats located in the City of Steamboat Springs and within Routt County are required by law to be licensed yearly.

The price for the license is $5 for altered animals or $25 for unaltered animals. To purchase a license, pet owners will need to provide proof of a current rabies vaccination (certificate and not the metal tag).

Licenses can be purchased at Routt County Humane Society, 760 Critter Court, or at your own local veterinarian office such as Mountain Peaks Veterinary Clinic, Ski Town Animal Hospital (formerly Mt. Werner Veterinary Hospital), Pet Kare Clinic and Steamboat Veterinary Hospital.

Residents within the city limits of Hayden, Oak Creek and Yampa require their own city license. Check with town halls in each location for additional information.

Keep in mind, if you lose your 2019 license after purchasing it for this year, a replacement tag will cost $2 and is only available from the Routt County Humane Society shelter.

Don't's required by law that all dogs and cats wear the current license on their collar or harness.
