Twin Cities Dog Laws

Find out the dog laws for your city

Many cities around the metro require dog licenses and have limits to how many dogs and cats are allowed per household. To receive a dog license, and even where licenses are not required, you need proof of the rabies vaccination for each dog and cat. Licenses help animal control and other city officials get your lost pets back to you in case you ever lose track of them. Click your city below to learn more about local dog laws.
