License Your Pet
NOTE: The weather is getting warmer and that means you will want to take your dog to the dog park. You must have vaccinations and a license for your dog to go to a dog park.
If you apply for the license online, it takes several business days to get the paperwork back to you. If you want to get your license immediately, it is best to come to the business office at Louisville Metro Animal Services, 3705 Manslick Road. Our hours are 12 noon - 6 P.M. M-F.
There are four ways to license a dog, cat or ferret in Louisville
- License your pet online
- Download and mail-in your license
- License your pet at a participating vet
- Come into our business office, 3705 Manslick Rd. or our Adoptions Center, 3516 Newburg Rd. Bring your pet's rabies certificate.
