ABOUT DOG AND CAT PET REGISTRATIONS

ALL dogs and cats living within Fort Wayne city limits must be registered with Animal Care & Control by the time they are five months old. Registrations can be obtained through the shelter, local veterinary clinics, and H.O.P.E. for Animals. A registration tag will be issued and should be attached to your pet's collar for quick identification should your pet ever become lost. All dogs and cats must be registered or the owner will be issued a citation. Owners may choose between lifetime and annual registration.
