Notice to Dog Owners Living in the Town of Clearfield

All dogs, 5 months of age or older, must be immunized against rabies and licensed annually before April 1 of each year. If a dog owner fails to license their dog before April 1, a late fee of $5.00 per dog will be assessed. Proof of a Rabies Vaccination Certificate is required by the State before a license can be issued. Mail the Rabies Vaccination Certificate when licensing your dog as it contains all the necessary information needed to issue a license. Most taxpayers license their dogs at the time they pay their tax bill. Dog licenses for new dogs can be purchased from the Town Treasurer any time during the year.  Individual dog license fees are:

$8.00 each for male or female

 

$3.00 each if the dog is neutered or spayed

Town of Clearfield has an Animal Ordinance and issues citations to persons not complying with Ordinance #5 Animal Controlling and Licensing. Not licensing your dog may result in a substantial fine. It is against the law to allow your dog and other animals to run at large.
