Dare County Dog Licenses

Dare County statutes 91.001 and 91.025 require all dogs that reside in Dare County wear an identification tag distributed by Dare County Animal Control. These licenses not only help us get your pets back home to you, but helps us track rabies vaccination status for the dogs in our county. Licenses are issued annually starting January of each year.
