Why License?

It is the law in Calvert County that all dogs and cats over the age of five months be licensed. 

There are two good reasons to license your pet in addition to meeting this requirement. 

  1. If your pet should get lost, this identification will allow Animal Control to reunite you with your pet. 
  2. It is issued proof of regular vaccination against the deadly rabies virus, visit our rabies clinics webpage to learn more about rabies vaccinations.
