WYTHEVILLE, Va. – Wythe County would like to remind residents that dog tags are due to be purchased by January 31. Officials encourage residents to come to the Treasurer’s Office and buy them if you have not done so already.

Code Enforcement Officer A.B. Dunford said officials will be doing compliance checks in Wythe County which includes the town of Wytheville and the town of Rural Retreat. Compliance checks will start in February.

Dunford also encouraged residents to make sure rabies vaccinations are up to date. Please be aware that rabies inoculations are required prior to purchasing a dog license.

“We want to make sure all pets have their rabies inoculations, we have had rabies in the county,” Dunford said. “Please get out now and purchase your dog tags and rabies shots for your animals. If you don’t have them, you could be imposed a fine in court.”

The price of the dog tags are as follows: 1 year $5, 2 years $10, and 3 years $15.

If your dog has been neutered or spayed the costs are as follows: 1 year $4, 2 years $8 and 3 years $10. Dog tags can be purchased at the Treasurer’s Office inside the Wythe County Courthouse.

According to Dunford, rabies cases have been confirmed in Wythe County, so dog owners need to make sure that all rabies vaccinations are current.

Dunford said that keeping your animals vaccinated is the best form of protection from this deadly disease for both residents and their pets.
