On September 11, 2017, Bloomington City Council approved lifetime animal licensing.

As of September 21, 2017, the lifetime animal license came into effect with a flat fee of $25.00 per animal (cat, dog, or ferret). This license will be good for the life of the animal and is non-transferable. Lifetime licenses will become available for purchase on October 9, 2017 for animals not previously licensed with the city. A notice will be mailed to all animals with a 2017 City of Bloomington animal tag in late October of this year. This notice can be returned to City Hall with a fee of $25.00 and a lifetime animal tag will be issued.

You must provide a rabies certificate at the time of purchase showing the animal is current on his/her rabies vaccination.

No household shall have more than four animals.  This includes dogs, cats, and ferrets over six months old.

Any questions, please call the Licensing Department at 952-563-8728.
