Animal License Information

Animal License Information

Any dog or cat kept within city limits now must be identified at all times by two tags. One tag must have the name and phone number of the owner, and the other is a metal tag that will be stamped or engraved with a license number at the time of issuance for each dog and cat. The tags will need to be attached to the animals’ collar or harness.


Residents can acquire a license for dogs or cats by bringing proof from the animals’ veterinarian of current rabies vaccinations to the Mandan Police Department, 205 First Ave NW. Licenses can be purchased for one to three years depending on how long the rabies vaccinations are valid.

The cost is:

$6 for one year

$10 for two years

$15 for three years.
