Altered Dog 1 Year $15
Altered Dog 3 Year $30
Unaltered Dog 1 Year $30
Unaltered Dog 3 Year $60
Stock/Hunt Pack 1 Year Only $50

Licenses can be obtained by either mailing your rabies certificate and fee to Glenn County Animal Control, 543 West Oak Street, Willows, CA 95988 or stopping by our office Monday-Friday 8:00pm-5:00pm.  Dogs not licensed within 60 days of the date the vaccination is given will be subject to a $10 late fee.
