The Virginia Dangerous Dog Registry is a public, searchable online database of dogs declared dangerous by local courts. It also serves as the mechanism by which local animal control officers must report dangerous dogs to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
Information for Dangerous Dog Owners
Contact your local animal control agency for information about initial registration or annual renewal. Dangerous dog owners should pay all fees to their local animal control agency or treasurer’s office, as directed by their locality. Do not send fees to the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
