Dogs, cats, and ferrets are required to have a current rabies vaccination starting at four months of age, which must be maintained for the duration of the pet’s life.  The county registration serves as a means of ensuring that the rabies vaccination is kept current.  Neutered animals cost a lower fee to register than intact animals, to encourage reduced pet overpopulation.  (Specialty pet registrations are also available.)  Fees are as follows:​​​
