Pet Regulations

All cats and dogs in North Liberty must be licensed with the City as soon as they reach four months of age. If you adopt a pet, it should be licensed immediately.

Stop by City Hall (3 Quail Creek Circle) and fill out a short form to license your pet. You can submit via mail. (Click here to download PDF of the form) If spayed or neutered, the fee is $2 per pet per year; otherwise the fee is $25 per pet per year. You will be issued a license tag, which will be used to identify your pet and make sure it is safely returned to you if it is ever lost. Tags are valid for the issuance calendar year. By mailing in the fee and form, City Hall will send you the license.

All pets six months or older must also be vaccinated against rabies. Your vet will provide you with a tag at the time of immunization. For your pet’s safety, it should always be wearing both the rabies and license tags.

Pets at large

Any pet found at large, and any pet considered to be a public nuisance, may be seized and impounded. Owners may retrieve their pet only after the impound, boarding, delinquent license fees and fine for municipal infraction are paid in full.

Pick up after your pet

It is unlawful to let your dog or cat use public property, or private property other than your own, as a toilet! You must pick up after your pet, for health and safety reasons. Pet waste bags are provided in our public parks for your convenience.
