Twin Falls city code requires citizens with dogs to license them every year. This can help the city and Twin Falls Animal Shelter keep track of the number of animals in the city and help them get back home if they are ever lost. Cost per dog for a license is $10 for puppies and fixed dogs. Those who haven't listened to the words of Bob Barker to have your pets spayed or neutered, the license fee is $25. Cats do not require a license in city limits. Licenses can be purchased at the Twin Falls Animal Shelter.

A pet license through the city is different than a pet microchip which is most useful to keep track of lost, stolen, or abandoned pets. Full city code details for animals can be found online. This includes the knowledge that citizens can have four dogs and four cats per household, any more than that requires special permission, accommodations, and a kennel permit. Permits are also required if you want to own more than three rabbits, four poultry birds, cows, goats, horses, or sheep within city limits. Enough land, according to code, is also required and varies per animal.

Pigs, hogs, and rooster chickens are prohibited within city limits.

If you don't own a cat or a dog but wish to have the company of a new furry best friend, check out the Twin Falls Animal Shelter or watch their Facebook page for updates on available animals.
