Pet Licensing Information
Dog and cat licenses cost $15 for altered pets and $25 for unaltered pets. Waukee residents are required to license pets annually per City ordinance. A proof of rabies vaccination is required. Licensing your pet improves the chances of having your animal returned to you should they become lost or run away, and it helps the City of Waukee ensure that pets are vaccinated. No more than three cats and three dogs are permitted. Failure to license pets could result in a up to a $100 fine per animal.
Get a Trailside Dog Park Pass
Take advantage of Waukee's 4-acre dog park, allowing dogs of all sizes to run freely in an entirely fenced in area! Trailside Dog Park passes are $25 for residents and $45 for non-residents. Park passes are good until Dec. 31, after which, a new pass will need to be purchased for the next year. Learn more.
