Where's My Pet Registration Tag?

City dogs and cats must be registered with our department by the time they are five months old. Registration tags are available at our shelter, local veterinary clinics, HOPE for Animals and the Low Cost Spay Neuter Clinic. Attach the registration tag to the collar for quick identification should your pet ever become lost. Choose between lifetime and annual registration to comply with city ordinance and to avoid a citation. Register and pay online.
