Now is the time to purchase your dog's license for 2024-2025. Identification through licensing your dog is important. Sometimes dogs wander or become lost. The license tag helps animal control officers locate the owner of any pooch they may pick up.
Licenses also are required to use Woodbury's off-leash dog park, Andy's Bark Park. Everyone who purchases a dog license will receive a dog park parking pass. All dogs must be licensed, and dog park users should display the pass in the lower passenger side of the vehicle's front window. If you need more than one parking pass, they are available at City Hall for $5 for each additional pass.
Licenses are required for all dogs six months and older, and should be purchased prior to March 31, 2024.
The license period will start Jan. 1, 2024, and end Dec. 31, 2025. For Woodbury residents, the fee is $10 for each spayed or neutered dog, $18 for each non-altered dog. For non-residents, the fee is $15 for each spayed or neutered dog, $23 for each non-altered dog. After March 31, license fees increase. New residents of Woodbury must license their dog(s) within 60 days. In order to be processed, documentation from a veterinarian must be provided to verify rabies vaccination expiration date.
As in previous years, you can use the attached application to purchase your license by mail or you may come in person. Licenses can be obtained at Woodbury City Hall, 8301 Valley Creek Road from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please bring a printed copy of your dog's most recent rabies vaccination certification. Credit cards (MasterCard, Visa and Discover) are accepted in person only; however, payment of cash or check will expedite service.
License applications also are available online. If you mail in the application, you must include a copy of the rabies certificate and a check payable to the City of Woodbury. Mail to: City of Woodbury, Dog License, 8301 Valley Creek Road, Woodbury, MN 55125.
