Norman Animal Welfare is now administering 2017 City of Norman Pet licenses through its new vendor PetData. If you need to renew or purchase a new license for your pet, it’s now easier than ever! Purchasing a license and attaching it to your pet’s collar is one of the most important things you can do as a responsible pet owner.  Displaying a current license tag on your pet’s collar makes it easy for animal control officers and shelter employees to quickly locate a lost pet’s owner information. It could be your pet’s ticket home!

Remember, cats and dogs over the age of six months must be licensed with the City of Norman, and the City encourages pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. The license fee for spayed or neutered pets is $10 for one year or $30 for three years, and the fee for unneutered or unspayed pets is $20 for one year or $60 for three years. Senior citizens age 65 and over may license their pets at a reduced rate. A rabies vaccination certificate including vaccination and expiration dates is required to obtain a license.

Licenses expire one year or three years from the end of the month in which they were purchased, but will not be valid beyond the last day of the month that the rabies vaccination expires.

Norman residents can purchase or renew a pet license online or by mail.

To license online, go to and enter your zip code. You can license multiple pets at the same time, and easily upload required documents.  All major credit cards are accepted.

To license by mail, simply mail a copy of your cat or dog’s current rabies certificate and any other applicable documentation, along with your check to Norman Animal Licensing, C/O PetData, PO Box 141929, Irving, TX 75014.

About PetData

With headquarters near Dallas, Texas, PetData, Inc. provides animal licensing services for municipalities and animal welfare agencies throughout the United States. PetData has 20 years of experience with animal licensing programs, and has processed over nearly 8 million licenses.

Animal licensing is PetData’s sole business, and our goals are based on the belief that a successful animal licensing program eases the burden placed on municipalities. Proper licensing may result in a reduction in the number of animals entering shelters, and can help eliminate expenses that may associated with the care, feeding, and disposition of these licensed animals. Licensing enforcement helps ensure compliance with rabies vaccination requirements, which in turn reduces the probability of an outbreak of rabies in the local animal population. PetData believes proper education on the benefits of licensing and vaccination generally promotes more responsible pet ownership, resulting in a safer, more informed community.
