Keep your pet safe! License them today!
Pet ownership comes with a lot of responsibilities and licensing your pet is at the top of the list. Purchasing a pet license is easy, affordable and drastically improves your chances of having your animal returned to you should they become lost or run away.
Licensing lets people know that your animal is up-to-date on their vaccinations and license fees support the efforts of local animal shelters.
Failure to license your pets could result in a $50 fine for the first offense and $100 for subsequent offenses. The City also requires a $45 impound fee and $25 service fee. Remember: The cost of a license is far less than being caught without one!
