Protect your pets!
Come vaccinate your dogs and cats. The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), in partnership with the Animal Care and Control of NYC, is providing free rabies vaccination to dogs and cats.
Need a dog tag right away?
The NYC DOHMH is also providing on-the-spot licensing for your dog. Dog licensing is a legal requirement in New York City. The annual fee to license your dog in New York City is $8.50 if your dog is spayed or neutered. The fee is $34 if your dog is not spayed or neutered.
Dog owners will not be cited for violations if they do not have a current license for their pet. The DOHMH will also waive the $2 late fee for renewing an expired license on this day. All major credit cards, debit cards, money orders and checks will be accepted at the event. Cash cannot be accepted.
Have questions about your dog license?
DOHMH will have staff on hand that can answer your questions.
