Those who wish to license their dog or dogs at the fair are asked to bring a veterinarian receipt or other proof of spay/neuter, if applicable.The typical license fee is $16 for a pet that is spayed or neutered (with documentation) and $21 for a pet that isn't, according to the city's website.Dogs in Meridian that are older than 6 months must be licensed each calendar year, according to City Clerk C.
