If I have a rabies tag for my pet, why do I also need a City of Aurora Pet License?
The City of Aurora reaches into 4 counties: Kane, DuPage, Will and Kendall. While each county administers their own rabies/animal control program, these agencies have varying hours of business.

If we pick up a pet that is only wearing a county rabies tag, it may take a bit longer to find its owner/home. If your pet is wearing a City of Aurora pet license, we can move rapidly to get your pet back home to you. Your information will be in our own data base. A city pet license is also required by our City ordinances.
