Animal Licensing Requirements

Licensing Requirements

All dogs and cats must be licensed each year to a person 18 years of age or older. The license needs to be obtained within 30 days of the dog or cat reaching the age of four months, within 30 days of owning the dog or cat, or within 30 days after moving to the City. Proof of current rabies vaccination by a licensed veterinarian is required. The first time you license your pet you will need to apply in person. After that, you may renew by mail by sending payment to the City.

Yearly Fees

$5 per cat/dog
$4 per cat/dog for residents over the age of 60

Each residential address is limited to two dogs and two cats. The tag must be worn at all times on a collar or harness. Replacement tags will be issued as a renewal, and will expire 1 year from the date issued.

Renewals are sent out 1 month prior to the license expiring. Payment will need to be received by the license expiration date or a late fee of $10 will be charged.
