According to Gilbert’s Animal Control Ordinance, all dog and cat owners within the City are required to purchase an annual license for their pet. The annual license fee is $5 for each spayed or neutered animal and $10 for each animal that is not spayed or neutered. When licensing an animal, the owner must present a current certificate that the animal has been inoculated with rabies vaccine. Licenses should have been purchased the beginning of the year for all pets – please do so immediately if you have not yet purchased a license. Owners of unlicensed animals are subject to an administrative fine.
