All owners are required to have a rabies vaccination for dogs and cats and a City license. City licenses cost $4 for cats/dogs that are altered and $10 if they are not altered. Rabies vaccinations must be administered by a licensed veterinarian.
Exotics are required to have a permit. More City Code information for exotic animals can be found within the Chesapeake Municipal Code of Ordinances (Municode). Information for exotics is on the resource page.
