Dog Licenses

The City of Fridley requires all dogs over the age of 6 months be licensed and vaccinated against rabies (City Code Section 101.05).
We do not require cats to be licensed.
By applying for a license, the owner acknowledges that it is their responsibility to keep the dog's rabies vaccination current once the license is issued.
Fridley dog licenses are issued for the lifetime of the dog, or until its ownership is transferred within Fridley. The license fee is $25. 
If you have any questions, please contact us at 763-571-3450 or
Dogs in Fridley must be leashed unless confined in the owner’s yard.
