Delaware residents must purchase a dog license if interested in adopting a dog. Out-of-state adopters will need to purchase a license separately, if required.
Ages 65 and older, who own dogs, will be offered a reduced rate for dogs that were spayed or neutered (discount does not apply to unaltered dogs). Proof of age is required. The rate is $7 annually, a $3 reduction on the regular price of $10 for spayed or neutered dogs. Licenses for unaltered dogs remain $15 per year for all applicants. Please be aware that there is a $3 additional fee for processing each license.
