Licenses are low cost. License service offers the following fees:

  • $10 for a sterilized pet; $30 for non-sterilized
  • $5 senior fee for sterilized pet; $10 senior fee for non-sterilized
  • $5 for replacement tag (sterilized); $10 for replacement tag (non-sterilized)

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

Adoption fees, per the above schedule, were changed in April 2018 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.
