To help make that easier, license fees are half-price during the month of May. Prices are as follows for the month of May:
- Non-spayed/non-neutered - $10
- Spayed/neutered - $5
- Senior citizen rate for non-spayed/non-neutered - $9
- Senior citizen rate for spayed/neutered - $2.50
- Duplicate/replacement license - $1
Pet licenses are effective June 1 through May 31 of the following year.
To be eligible for the senior citizen rate, residents must be age 60 years and older. To find a location near you where pet licenses are sold or learn more, visit pocatello.gov/151/Dog-Cat-Licenses. Simply visit a location with a valid driver's license to get your pet a license.
Cats that reside within the city are not required to be licensed, but licenses are available if desired or if required by a landlord.
Multiple Animal Housing Permits must also be renewed each year starting in May. The fee is $25 for the first year and $10 each year to renew. The fee goes up to $15 to renew after May 31.
Who needs a Multiple Animal Housing Permit?
If a person inside the Pocatello city limits has three or more dogs and/or six or more cats, they are required by the City to get a Multiple Animal Housing Permit. The pet owner can pick up an application at the Animal Shelter or can print one here: pocatello.gov/DocumentCenter/View/73/Multiple-Animal-Housing-Permit-PDF
