I just moved to Nampa and have dogs. What do I need to know?

All dogs within Nampa city limits are required to have a Nampa City Dog License (per City Ordnance 6-2-20). There are discounts for Senior Citizens (over 65 years of age), if the dog is microchipped, and if the dog is spayed/neutered. Evidence is required to show proof that the discount option has been met. I.E., driver's license or legal I.D., veterenarian records showing spay/neuter, and rabies vaccination status. All dogs in Nampa are requiered to have a current rabies vaccination.

Note: underground electric fences do not qualify as an enclosure/fence under the definition of “enclosure” in Nampa Ordnance (Definitions: 6-2-1).
