How do I Obtain an Animal License?
All dogs and cats must be licensed beginning at 4 months of age. Pet owners must provide a current rabies vaccination certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian. A late fee does not apply to new residents or new pets if the license is obtained within 30 days of moving into the City or adoption of a pet.
One, two, or three-year licenses are available and may not be issued beyond the expiration of the rabies vaccination.
Additionally, residents are not permitted to have more than three dogs or cats within the City (see the City Code of Ordinances Sec. 22-42 here).
Want your animal license mailed to you?
