Pet Licensing and Permits
Pet Licensing
Any dog, cat or ferret over 4 months old must be vaccinated, licensed and, when off premises, wear a tag and collar, unless they are microchipped.

The Pet Registration Application can be downloaded in .pdf format, printed and mailed to Rockville City Police Department, Neighborhood Services Division, 2 W. Montgomery Avenue, Rockville, Maryland 20850-2364.

Staggered Licensing
On June 15, 2015, the Mayor and Council formally adopted a change in the Animal Control Ordinance that now allows the City of Rockville to issue dog, cat and ferret licenses on a staggered basis. This will allow the coordination of the expiration of both the animals license and rabies certificate.
