North Liberty Annual Pet Licenses

Apply for a Pet License

A North Liberty Pet License is required for each cat and dog residing in North Liberty city limits, per North Liberty Code 56.01. Pet Licenses expire on December 31 of each year and need to be annually renewed. The “Pet Licensing & Animal Control” document paraphrases Code of Ordinances chapters related to cats and dogs, outlining the roles and responsibilities expected of pet owners in North Liberty.

Please fill out one Pet License application for each pet. Click on the green “Apply for a Pet License” button above for the online form. Alternatively, printed copies are available at North Liberty City Hall (3 Quail Creek Circle) and a fillable form for print is available here.

The first year of licensure is $25 per pet. If the pet is spayed/neutered, then renewals are free for the life of the pet, so long as it remains with the same household in North Liberty; if the pet is not spayed/neutered, then the annual renewal fee is $25. Persons 62 years and older and/or need a service animal are allowed one free Pet License.

Once your online application has been processed by staff and your pet’s tag is ready, then you will receive an email outlining your options to remit payment and receive your tag. If you do not receive a response email from staff within ten (10) business days, then you should email [email protected] to confirm whether your application was received. Please read our FAQ if you have any questions.

Red Fern Dog Park Annual Passes

Apply for a Park Pass

Red Fern Dog Park Annual Passes are available to anyone living in or visiting the Johnson County, Iowa area.

Dogs of North Liberty city residents (live on property within North Liberty City Limits) must have a current and valid North Liberty Pet License number before applying for a Red Fern Dog Park Annual Pass. Dogs of non-residents should check with their governing entity to determine whether they should have a pet license.

Click on the green “Apply for a Park Pass” button above for the online form. Alternatively, printed copies are available at North Liberty City Hall (3 Quail Creek Circle) or you can print your own, North Liberty Resident or Non-Resident (these are PDF fillable forms). For rules, visit the “Red Fern Dog Park Map, Rules & Etiquette” document.

Passes expire on December 31 of each year and need to be annually renewed. Dog Park Passes are $50 for the first dog of North Liberty residents ($25 for each additional dog in resident household) or $55 for the first dog of non-residents ($30 for each additional dog in non-resident household). Passes are prorated starting September 1 of each year.

Day Passes and Week Passes are not available.

Once your online application has been processed by staff and your dog’s Red Fern Dog Park Annual Pass is ready, then you will receive an email outlining your options to remit payment and receive your pass. If you do not receive a response email from staff within ten (10) business days, then you should email [email protected] to confirm whether your application was received.
