PET ONWERS WHO LIVE in Unincorporated Gunnison County: The BoCC voted on 9-4-2018 to have all Unincorporated Gunnison County Residents license their dogs with the Gunnison County Sheriff's office. The specific resolution can be found online at https://www.gunnisoncounty.org/resolutions. It is Resolution No: 2018-30, Article III Licensing. This requires all dog owners to obtain a Gunnison County license after you have received proof of their rabies vaccination. The only exception is a fee will not be charged for certified service and guide dogs used by impaired owners. The fee for each unaltered dog is $20, and $10 for altered animals. All licenses will expire on 12-31 of each year. The due date for getting your dogs licensed is March 1st of each year. There will be a $5 per month late fee if you do not license your dog by March 1st. In the event a tag is lost a duplicate shall be provided for a fee of $25. Dog License applications can be found at https://www.gunnisoncounty.org/DogTags, or call the Gunnison County Sheriff's at 970-641-1113.
