The City of Stillwater does not require a license for dogs or cats but does require all dogs, cats and ferrets over four months of age to be vaccinated against rabies. Dogs and cats must continually wear their rabies tags attached to a collar or harness.

Individual households within the city limits are limited to three dogs or cats unless the owner has been granted a professional animal permit by the City to operate a pet shop, kennel or shelter. Grooming facilities also require a permit.

Request to Obtain Grooming, Pet Shop or Kennel Permit

Submit this form to the Animal Welfare division at the Karen Kay Mullendore Municipal Animal Complex at 1710 S. Main St.

After an Animal Welfare officer inspects the business and/or kennel, you will receive a second form to submit to the Stillwater Municipal Building at 723 S. Lewis St. to purchase the permit.
