Greenlee County and the Town of Duncan charges $8 per dog license ($5 if the dog is spayed or neutered), while the Town of Clifton charges $10 per dog license ($8 if the dog is spayed or neutered).  All dogs 3 months and older must be licensed and have proof of anti-rabies vaccination.

The anti-rabies vaccination is $20 per dog and must be paid in cash. Rabies vaccinations are not required for cats, but can be provided upon request.

Owners will keep dogs in vehicles and veterinarians will approach the vehicle to administer the vaccine.
