Licensing Your Pet

How to license your pet: Dogs are the only pets requiring licenses in the Town of Prescott Valley. A current rabies vaccine is needed to license your dog, and only a licensed veterinarian can administer the vaccine.

When your pet has been vaccinated against rabies, ask the veterinarian for a copy of the pet's Rabies Vaccine Certificate. You will need this document to obtain the dog’s license.
