Dog License

Dog licenses may be obtained at the Nevis Administration Office.  You will be required to provide a "Certificate of Rabies Vaccination" indicating that your dog has been inoculated against rabies.

All licensed dogs must wear a collar in which to attach their license tag.  All dog licenses expire on April 1st of each year.  The cost of a license is $5.00. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Nevis Administration Office at: 218-652-3866.


Animal Control

All dogs over six months of age in the city must be licensed according to the ordinances of the City of Nevis. When you come in to purchase the license for your pet you must bring a copy of the animal's Certificate of Vaccination proving that the animal has a current vaccination for rabies. The license fees are $5.00 per pet with a pet limit of two dogs per household.

The tags are available at Nevis Administration Office (104 Main Street West) next to the Liquor Store from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.   The City of Nevis keeps track of the numbered tags, so if your pet strays and is found by others, the city can help get your pet home to you.
