Effective July 1, 2018
The Town of Fountain Hills will no longer issue dog licenses as processing of licenses is being turned over to Maricopa County Animal Care and Control. The Town will still accept payments for dog licensing renewals, new licenses, or processing cancellations up to May 31, 2018.
All existing licenses will be transferred to Maricopa County, who will send all current dog license holders a welcome letter and a new county tag (at no charge). The county tag will replace the Fountain Hills tag and have the same expiration date.
If the current Fountain Hills tag expires during the month of June 2018, you will not receive a renewal form from the Town and the renewal payment will not be collected. The county will start sending renewals letters in July and begin taking payments at that time. Please do not make payment to the county until you receive their letter. There will be no late fees during this transition period.
