The 2019 dog licenses are now available at the Cordova Police Department or the DMV.

Bring current proof of rabies vaccination to purchase a license for $20 if the dog is neutered or $25 if intact.

Dog licenses must be renewed annually.

Per city code 8.04.040, dog owners must have a dog license for dogs six months and older.
Licensing helps police to identify and returned pets to their homes should the pets become lost/found or injured.

A citation of $85 will be issued if the owner does not license their dog, plus any impound and boarding fee will be issued if owners cannot be located in a timely manner.
