License Fees

How to License a Pet

Pet Licenses are not presently required within the City of Oskaloosa, however a current rabies tag is required for cats or dogs over the age of six months. The City of Oskaloosa and the Stephen Memorial Animal Shelter are discussing the possibility of implementing a change to this existing requirement.

License Tag Purposes

Although no official city license is presently required for animals, a rabies tag is required. Additionally, please consider having your pet always wear an identification tag. The identification tag helps Animal Control Officers and others return a pet to the owner. Shelters are full of animals with no ID because the owner thinks a identification tag is unnecessary as "my pet never leaves the house or yard."
