If you're a dog owner, this week is the time to make sure Fido is up to date with the Town of Vienna.
All dogs four months or older living in the town must be licensed annually and vaccinated against rabies. (Dogs living in unincorporated parts of Vienna, under Fairfax County jurisdiction, must apply for separate licenses).
Each dog tag, which costs $10 annually, can be obtained by presenting a vaccination certificate from a licensed vet. They must be "securely attached to a collar and worn whenever the dog is off the owner's property.
The annual tags expire Dec. 31 of each year, and new ones must be displayed by Jan. 31.
There are some exceptions. Among them: service, guide and hearing dogs.
Have a cat? While the pets must be inoculated against rabies, they don't need town licenses.
How to apply: Bring a Dog License Application to the Finance Department at Town Hall, 127 Center Street S.
