Permits & Licensing

Dear Pet Owner,

Lincoln Animal Control will not be sending out November 2016 pet license renewals until December 1, 2016. You WILL NOT receive any late charges if you pay your November license fee before December 31, 2016. We are in the process of updating our animal licensing software.

If you want to license your pet(s) in November, you can come into our office at 3140 N Street to license your pet(s) or you can call Animal Control at 402-441-7900 and license your pet(s) over the phone with a credit card. All pet owners with November license renewals or owners with a new pet will be mailed a license renewal notice after December 1, 2016. Our walk in office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

For those pet owners that prefer on-line licensing, please note that on-line licensing and renewal service will be down for a period of time starting November 4, 2016.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation during our change. If you have any questions, please call Animal Control at 402-441-7900.

City ordinance requires any person within the city who owns a dog or cat over six months of age to obtain a license and rabies vaccination for the animal. The court fine for failure to license is $100.00 plus $48.00 court costs per animal. All licenses issued are valid for one year from the date of purchase. Rabies vaccination must be current to purchase a pet license.

Put the tag on your pet's collar! A rabies tag is not a license. An I.D. tag is not enough. With a license we have your pet's number, and we can locate you if it strays or is injured.
