Licenses run the calendar year. Licenses for the new year can be purchased at the Animal Shelter starting mid-December each year. You can get a license from the shelter Mondays through Fridays 9 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30-3 p.m. (closed between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.).

Licenses are low cost. Payment is by credit/debit card only. Once everything is complete, you will receive your license and a paper copy.

Euthanization services are only offered by appointment only. Owners must be 55 & over.

Adoption fees, per the above schedule, were changed to reflect the fact that our shelter is now vaccinating animals upon intake.

Bidding on adoptable animals is rare, but does take place on certain occasions. Per City policy, if multiple adopters seek the same pet when the animal becomes available, a bidding process will take place. Bids are taken by credit, debit or preloaded money cards only - no cash or checks. Adopters must have proper ID.
