All dogs and cats 4 months and older must be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian and then must be registered with the City of Richardson Animal Shelter.

Pets younger than 4 months cannot be registered until they have been vaccinated.

Your pet must wear its current City registration tag on its collar, and wear its collar at all times.  These tags are vital if your pet is lost or injured. Registration for pets owned by senior citizens (65 and older) is free.
