Licenses run the calendar year. Licenses for the new year can be purchased at the Animal Shelter starting mid-December each year.
NOTE: The Taylor Animal Shelter, 25555 Northline Road between Telegraph and Beech Daly, is reopening its pet licensing program from 9-11 a.m. each Thursday. The shelter will be licensing every Thursdays going forward. Some special dates may be added on Saturdays.
Licenses are low cost and good for a calendar year. 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)
Payment is by credit/debit card only. There is no need to call for an appointment. When you arrive, remain in the lot outside your vehicle, and an animal control officer will come out and join you, and complete the transaction. Once everything is complete, you will receive your license and a paper copy.
While outside they will have to use social distancing and have a mask on.
Euthanization services are only offered during the hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. No Saturdays.
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.
