Security Measure

License dogs and cats by Dec. 31

License dogs and cats by Dec. 31
Posted on 11/07/2019
Two dogs on leashes with ownerPet licenses are required for all cats and dogs age 6 months and older in Lenexa. They play an important role in keeping our community safe and giving you peace of mind in the stressful event that your furry family member becomes lost.

Licensing your pet helps neighbors and animal control officers reunite you with your dog or cat if they decide to sneak away. And, a license allows your pet to receive emergency medical treatment from our animal control officers if it’s found injured.

Requiring pet licenses also helps us protect the community by ensuring all pets are vaccinated for rabies and aiding in investigating dog bites and dangerous animals. If your pet is found without a license, you could receive a ticket.

Renew or sign up for a new license

Pet licenses expire on Dec. 31 of each year. You are required to renew your pet licenses annually.

You can register or renew your license and upload a copy of your pet’s current rabies vaccination certificate at
