All dogs and cats must be vaccinated with either a one year or three year rabies vaccination. In addition, all dogs must obtain and renew a license tag every year on or before the tag's expiration date. Failure to do so may result in a citation from the Miami-Dade Animal Services Department.

Paying a citation
Citations can be paid through Code Enforcement, Clerk of Courts or directly at Animal Services.
