West University residents are required to register their pets with the City's Animal Control Officer. The cost is $20 ($15 for owners over 65 years of age) per animal for a lifetime registration.
To register, bring a copy of the pet's rabies vaccination records to the Public Works Building located at 3826 Amherst and fill out the registration form available there. You will receive a tag to keep as proof of registration. Your pets should wear this tag, along with the rabies tag, on their collars to help Animal Control identify your pets should they leave your yard or become lost. Periodically make sure that all enclosures where your pets are kept are secure.
Please note, that you can register a maximum of three dogs, three cats, or any combination of dogs and cats not exceeding 4 (i.e., 2 dogs and 2 cats, 3 dogs and a cat, 3 cats and a dog). Once registered, your pet will be registered for life with the city. The city does not implant microchips (although they are recommended), and a veterinarian should be consulted for implantation.
