Pet Licensing and Permits
Pet Licensing
Dog licensing is handled by the Neighborhood Services Division located in the Police Department at 2 W. Montgomery Ave. Rockville, MD 20850.

All dogs older than four months are required to be licensed. No City of Rockville license is required for cats.

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 January 26, 1998, the Mayor and Council formally adopted a change in the Animal Control Ordinance that now allows the City of Rockville to issue dog licenses on a staggered basis. This will allow the coordination of the expiration of both the dogs license and rabies certificate.
