Pet owners pay $8 a year to license a pet. Under the proposed ordinance, owners would pay $10 to license a “compliant” pet — one that is sterilized and vaccinated against rabies. For animals that are not sterilized, new license fees would range up to $75. The city would issue licenses to “properly identified” service dogs at no cost.
The fees proposed for impounded animals are also structured to encourage licensing, sterilizing and vaccinating pets. The impound fee for a compliant animal would be $25. The fee for noncompliant animal would be $350, and the
quarantine fee for a noncompliant animal would be $500.
