Dog and cat owners are required to purchase an annual license each year. They must acquire it when one of the following three things occurs: (1) Within 15 days of when the current rabies vaccine expires (2) Upon the purchase or ownership of a new pet or (3) Upon becoming a new resident of the City of Scottsboro. These tags are available for purchase in the front lobby of the city hall. Pet owners need to provide the current rabies vaccine certificate, which they received from their veterinarian’s office as proof that the animal has been vaccinated. A $3.00 fee per pet will be charged. Both the current rabies tag and the annual license tag should be attached to the collar of the pet.
