Animal Licensing

License Your Pet

All dogs and cats are required by the City of Mansfield to be licensed. The benefit of having your animal licensed is that:

  • Licensed pets are MORE LIKELY to be returned home without being impounded.
  • Licensed pets are held for 15 days instead of 3 days
  • Other people will be able to return lost pets to their rightful owner

To license your pet you need to come by the Mansfield Animal Care & Control and bring your current rabies certificate. The license cost which includes a license tag is $5 to $15 (annually) depending on whether your pet is altered and/or microchipped.
