Dog & Cat Licenses

State and municipal law dictates that all dogs and cats 5 months and older be licensed with the City by March 31 of each year. City of Burlington tags will be available December 31 at City Hall, 300 N. Pine Street. If you are licensing your pet for the first time or you have recently vaccinated your pet, a rabies certificate must be presented at the time of licensing. Residents that move to the city or have a pet that reaches 5 months of age after the deadline date will not be charged the late fee. A move within the city does not qualify for this exception. Not only is licensing your pet a requirement of the city, the tag numbers are listed with the Burlington Police Department. If your pet were to stray, the tag is a valuable resource to bring them back home quickly.

Please note the licensing fees have increased slightly for 2023 as listed below:

  • Dogs & Cats: (Spayed/Neutered) - $10
  • Dogs & Cats: (Non-spayed/non-neutered) - $15
  • After March 31 a $5 late fee is added to the cost of the tag.

To purchase a pet license by mail, owners will need to send a copy of their rabies vaccination certificate along with payment to City Hall, 300 N. Pine Street, Burlington, WI 53105. Please include your name, address, phone number and pet’s name with the vaccination certificate and payment. Proof that your pet has been spayed or neutered is required for those owners wishing to receive the discounted rate. There will be a $1 additional fee for mailed requests, as the City of Burlington will need to mail the license tag for the pet’s collar to the resident. Applications received by mail post-marked after March 31 will be assessed the $5 fee. For questions, call 262-342-1161.
