Dogs & Licensing






The City of Ashland requires the issuing of dog licenses to a person owning, keeping or harboring a dog over 6 months of age and within one month of acquisition.  Licenses are then due on an annual basis each MAY 1ST. Dog Licenses will not be issued without a copy of current rabies vaccinations.  Licenses must be renewed each year by May 31st  or a late fee of $5.00 per dog will be applied.


If you own, keep or harbor a dog you may purchase a license(s) in person Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at City Hall, or by sending in the application below along with a photo copy of the rabies information and the appropriate fee to City Hall.  Dog tags will be mailed to you. You may also make additional copies of this form if necessary.


COVID-19 Dog License Procedure - Dog licenses will NOT be issued at City Hall at this time.  The forms below can be printed, filled out and and mailed to City Hall or dropped in the drop box, with payment.  If we do not have an updated rabies vaccination, you need to include that with the form.  If you do not have a printer, call City Hall and we can mail you a form.  Payment can also be made by phone with a debit or credit card; there is a small convenience fee applied with this method.  The dog license and tag will be mailed back to you.  



Male or Female (intact)                               $ 27.00    After May 31st   $ 32.00

Male or Female (spayed or neutered)        $ 12.00    After May 31st   $ 17.00


If you have 3 dogs or keep dogs for breeding you must purchase a kennel license.  No more than 2 dogs per dwelling unit in a duplex  or multi-family buildings.  Contact the City office at 944-3387, see forms and regulations below, or come in for details.
