Metro Animal Services Offers License Amnesty

Friday December 20, 2013

Louisville Metro Animal Services (LMAS) will waive all late fees starting Wednesday, January 1, 2014 through Friday, February 28, 2014 for cats, dogs and ferrets whose licenses have either lapsed or were never purchased.

“Licensing your pet is extremely important and it’s the law,” said Louisville Metro Animal Services Senior Manager Margaret Brosko. “If you ever lose your pet, licensing can help you reunite. License numbers provide our staff with your contact information. If a Metro Animal Control Officer finds a roaming dog or cat with a license, the officer will give your pet a ride home.”

And now, it is easier than ever to license your pet. An upgraded on-line license form is simple and user friendly. Check it out:

Citizens can license their altered pets for $9 and unaltered pets for $50. The late license amnesty can save people a great deal of money and is an opportunity that should not be missed. Late fees can range from $47.50 for altered animals to $195.00 for unaltered animals.

LMAS uses funding from licenses to support operations including: caring for stray pets, investigating public safety threats as it relates to animals, investigating allegations of animal cruelty/neglect and much more.

Don’t delay – License your pet today on-line or at either Metro Animal Services location:
