Dog Licenses

All dogs in David City must be licensed. A license is required if the dog is over 6 months of age. Documentation from a veterinarian is required to prove that the dog is current on all vaccinations (e.g. Rabies). A Dog License is $10.00 if the dog is spayed or neutered and is $20.00 if the dog is NOT spayed or neutered. All dog licenses expire on December 31st of the current year and need to be renewed annually.

All dogs shall have the permanent tag affixed to the dog collars so that the Butler County Sheriff’s Department can see that the dog has been licensed.

For further information please refer to City Code Chapter 6, Article 1.
