2020 Pet Registration Forms Due By December 31

Post Date:12/17/2019 9:22 AM

AnimalsThe City of Evanston reminds dog and cat owners to submit their 2020 Pet Registrations by Tuesday, December 31, 2019.

Pet registration forms were mailed out in late October. Residents can conveniently renew their pet license online at, mail in their renewal form using the provided envelope, or turn in their form at the City Collector's Office, located in the Lorraine H. Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave. In order to receive a pet license, the application form must have a current Rabies Tag Number.

For those who do not have current rabies vaccination certificates on file with the City or those pet owners who did not receive a form in the mail, application forms are available online or in the City Collector's Office.

First-time applicants can simultaneously apply and pay for their 2020 pet license online. Residents must be able to upload a scanned copy or an image of their pet's current rabies vaccination certificate to complete the online application.

By City Ordinance, all dogs and cats four months of age or older are required to have pet licenses. The annual cost is $10 if the pet is neutered or spayed, and $15 if not altered.

The biggest benefit of registering a pet with the City of Evanston is the increased chance of pet owners being reunited with their dog or cat, should it become lost. Applying for the license also serves as a reminder to renew a pet's annual rabies vaccination, which could save its life.

For more information, visit or call/text 847-448-4311. For convenience, residents may simply dial 3-1-1 in Evanston.
