All dogs in San Juan County are required by law to be licensed. A share of the proceeds from the fees goes to the local animal shelters for their operations. The remainder goes into a county fund which pays the expenses of the licensing and animal control program.
Part of that fund is reserved for reimbursement for livestock injured or killed by dogs. After expenses are paid, the balance is divided between the three animal shelters for impound services.
Dog licenses not renewed by March 31 incur an additional fee.
Neutered males/Spayed females $12
Natural male or female $30
Replacement tag (current year’s tag) $2
Photo fee (annually) $5
Late fee (after March 31, 2014) $10
