Getting a license for your dog may help him or her find their way home if they ever become lost, and it helps ensure Sedona remains rabies-free.
City Code (6-1-2A) requires all dogs over 4 months of age, who reside within the incorporated boundaries of the City of Sedona, be licensed. The incorporated boundaries roughly borders Upper Red Rock Loop Road on the West and Oak Creek/Back O’Beyond Road/Chapel Road on the South. If you live in Yavapai County, including the Village of Oak Creek, go to http://ycsoaz.sheltertrack.com. Any questions should be directed to Yavapai County Sheriff Animal Control at 928-771-3282.
You must present a valid “rabies certificate” when you purchase a license. If your dog has been sterilized, you will also need to present a “certificate of sterilization”. The license needs to be worn on the collar at all times, especially when your dog is off of your property. If your dog should become lost or “at large”, the license will aid in its identification and safe return to you. Under the city code, you can also be issued a citation for failure to license your dog.
The annual license fee for each currently vaccinated and sterilized dog is $10.00. The annual license fee for each currently vaccinated and unsterilized dog is $30.00.
The three-year license fee for each currently vaccinated and sterilized dog is $25.00. The three-year license fee for each currently vaccinated and unsterilized dog is $72.00.
Licenses can be purchased here at the Humane Society of Sedona although we want to minimize the amount of visitors coming into the shelter. Please mail your Dog License Application and a copy of the Rabies Certificate to 2115 Shelby Drive, Sedona, AZ 86336. If you have any questions, please call us at 928-282-4679.
