All City of Jacksonville resident dogs, cats, pot-belly pigs, and ferrets four months and older are required to have rabies vaccinations on an annual basis. At the time of inoculation, the veterinarian is required to either sell the City of Jacksonville rabies tag or provide the owner with the paperwork to purchase the tag from the Tax Collector. These tags can be purchased at any of our nine Tax Collector branches.  Residents of the beaches need to contact their municipalities for animal registration information.
