Henrico County dog tags are issued as permanent tags. The numbered tag received at the time of purchase is kept throughout the life of your dog unless it is lost, stolen or destroyed. When your dog’s rabies vaccine expires you will be paying to renew your permanent numbered tag. The license expiration will run concurrent with the rabies vaccine.

Dangerous dogs are defined in Section 5-30 of the Henrico County Code. Within 45 days of finding that an animal is a dangerous dog, the owner must obtain a dangerous dog registration certificate from the Animal Protection unit of the Division of Police and pay a registration fee. By January 31st of each year, until the dog is deceased, the certificate must be updated and the renewal fee paid.



Kennel fee for up to 50 dogs – $50.00

1 year or less $10.00

Multiyear $15.00

Duplicate tags $1.00
