How many dogs and/or cats can I keep in the city before I need a kennel license? No household shall have more than three cats or three dogs or a total of five dogs and cats more than six months of age in any combination, or be engaged in the commercial business of breeding, buying, selling, trading, training, or boarding cats or dogs or both cats and dogs, without having obtained a kennel license from the city clerk.
Kennel licenses must be renewed annually at the end of December. The kennel must be in an area zoned commercial and a State Kennel License must be presented to the city clerk. If the city clerk has not received any protest against the kennel, the city clerk may issue a renewal of an existing kennel license.
For additional information see the Code Book Chapter 2-122.
Required Fee: The annual kennel license is $100
