An important message from Louisville's Metro Animal Services: Late fees waived for pet licenses

Late Fee Amnesty Period More than

Triples Online Licensing


Time is Running Out to Save!  



(LOUISVILLE, February 19, 2010) –  Last month Metro Animal Services announced that it would waive all late fees during the month of February for cats, dogs and ferrets whose licenses have either lapsed or have never been purchased.  So far, the online license numbers have tripled compared to the same period in January.  In a sixteen day period, MAS licensed 276 animals online.  

“This is a significant increase, and we’d like to see even more pet owners take advantage of this opportunity,” said Jackie Gulbe, assistant director for community relations.  “It’s an easy process and licensing online is so much more convenient.”

Late fees can range from $47.50 for altered animals to $195.00 for unaltered animals.  Waiving these fees will save pet owners a lot of money and is an opportunity not to be missed!  The fees will be waived until February 28.  Licensing late fees will only be waived for individuals who license their animals using the online licensing tool available at  The online tool charges a $3 processing fee, fees will not be waived for those purchased through mail-in, walk-in or at veterinary offices.
