All dogs four months of age and older are required to have a dog tag. Dogs and domesticated cats must be vaccinated for rabies by four months of age by a licensed veterinarian. You must present a copy of the vaccination certification, signed by the veterinarian, specifying the date of the vaccination, the expiration date, a brief description of the dog, sex of the dog and name and address of the animal's owner when purchasing a dog tag. The certification of vaccination must be marked spayed or neutered in order to purchase an unsexed tag. If you are purchasing a kennel tag you must present the certifications of vaccination for all dogs kept in the kennel.
