Dog Licensing

Prairie Paws Animal Shelter is contracted with the City Of Ottawa, KS to issue licensing of dogs within the city limits. The City of Ottawa, KS requires all dogs residing within city limits to be licensed. If they are not the city reserves the right to issue a fine to the owners of the unlicensed dog.


It easy! Just download the application and bring it in to our office at Prairie Paws Animal Shelter along with proof of current Rabies certification for all dogs getting licensed. Current proof of a Rabies certification is required.


Please note unless you newly acquired your dog or just moved to Ottawa, KS  all licenses issued will include a late fee of $20.00 if not being renewed or issued between January 1st and February 15th. All licenses renew at the same time. For example if you purchase a license on December 31st, you would still need to renew between the time frame of January 1st and February 15th to avoid the $20.00 late fee.


Can’t make the drive? Mail us the form, proof of rabies, proof of sterilization and your payment along with a self addressed stamped envelope.
