Reminder to Scranton residents: License your dogs and cats

The City of Scranton reminds residents that all cats and dogs age 6 months and older must be licensed at City Hall. Current licenses expire on June 30.

The fee to license a pet is $4 for each pet that has been spayed or neutered and $10 for pets that have not been spayed or neutered. This fee applies to the first two dogs or cats in a household.

The fee for more than two dogs or two cats is $10 if the pet is spayed or neutered and $20 per pet if it is not spayed/neutered. 

Proof of current vaccinations and proof the animal has been fixed is required.  Licenses expire June 30 of each year and must be renewed annually.

A copy of the animal control ordinance is available at City Hall or by visiting www.scrantoniowa.com.

City officials explain there are many benefits for making sure that your pet is licensed, including:

• Licensed animals assure the community that the pet has been properly vaccinated from rabies.

• Pet licensing can enable animal control to quickly identify and return lost animals.

• The cost of a license is less than the penalty for being caught without one.

• It’s the responsible thing to do for your pets and the community.

For more information, contact the city clerk’s office at 712-652-3888.
