City Pet Licenses - Easy & Convenient!

A pet can slip out the door or under the fence or past the babysitter in an instant. But if Fido’s or Fluffy’s owners have secured license for their pets through City of Aurora Animal Control, finding them will be easier. And, it’s a law for dog and cat owners. Purchasing and / or renewing a dog or cat license is easy and inexpensive.
