Request a Lawn Sign
All dogs, cats and ferrets over four (4) months of age are required to be licensed. When a pet is lost and brought to the animal shelter, 98 percent of pets go home safely because of the identification on their license tag.
Please consider helping Minneapolis' lost animals by displaying a handsome lawn sign to promote awareness of our licensing program. The free signs can be picked up at the shelter during our normal business hours.
