Why License Your Pet?

  1. It’s a Free Ride Home
    If your licensed pet is found in Minneapolis, it will get a ride to your home instead of the animal shelter.
  2. Your Pet is More Likely to Get Back Home
    Licensed pets are three times more likely than unlicensed pets to go home again.
  3. Prompt Medical Attention
    If your pet is found injured, a pet license makes it more likely that its medical history can be located and it will get the proper medical care right away.
  4. It’s the Law
    Minneapolis requires dogs, cats, ferrets, and rabbits to be licensed (Minneapolis Ordinance 64.10 and 65.10).
  5. It Ensures a Pet is Vaccinated Against Rabies
  6. It Helps Other Animals. Your License Helps:
    • Shelter and feed lost dogs and cats and find them a new home.
    • Educate the public about responsible pet ownership.
    • Reunite lost dogs and cats with their owners
  7. You will Receive the I Love My Pet Rewards Program Card!
