Is your dog licensed?

All residents of the City of Westminster, both in Adams and Jefferson counties, are required by law to license their dogs.

Dog licenses can be traced around the clock by participating jurisdictions, which results in fewer impounds, as the animal management officer may be able to return the dog to the owner directly, eliminating the need to take the dog to the shelter.

In addition, dog licensing benefits our community by:

  • reducing the number of unwanted dogs by encouraging owners to spay and neuter dogs to receive a discounted price on their annual license
  • ensuring dogs have their current rabies vaccination, protecting pet owners and their animals by tracking dangerous and aggressive dogs and habitual offenders of animal laws​

View the Animal Management website for complete details including fees and locations to obtain a dog license.
