Want to pay for your pets registration on-line?  You can now pay for your dog or cat's registration on-line by using our credit card feature (sorry we are not currently set up for e-check dog/cat transactions).  However, please be aware that there is a 2.8% convenience fee and a site fee which is paid to the credit card company for processing your credit card payment.  A $21.00 registration fee paid by credit card will cost $22.57 of which $21.00 goes to the city for your registration and $1.57 goes to the credit card processing company.

If you are re-registering your pet:  Go to the xpress pay link and then click on animal licenses- renewal.  Type in your last name and click on find bills and all the animals in the city with that last name will appear.  Select the dog(s) and cat(s) that you wish to register and follow the instructions on the screen to finish your transaction.  If your name is not listed, could your pet be under a different last name?  Or if this is the first time you have registered your pet, please see below for new pet registrations.

If you are a new pet owner (within 2 months) who has not previously registered your pet: We will accept your payment on-line but we need to obtain a copy of the rabies certificate so go to  xpress pay link   and then Dog/Cat fees- new.  Please fill out the form as accurately as you can in reference to the vet's information.   Or mail in the appropriate information along with payment or stop by the Clerk's office to register your new pet.
