Pet registration is due March 1

The pet license tags being sold by the city of Humboldt are shown above. The back has a QR code that people can scan, or an 855 toll-free number to call to reveal information about the pet’s owner. Tags are $5 for unsexed dogs and cats and $10 for sexed animals. Pet owners from Dakota City or outside the Humboldt city limits can purchase the tags too. Humboldt animal control will have the information on file, as will Humboldt Police and Humboldt City Hall. Humboldt Independent photos by Kent Thompson.

Humboldt residents are reminded that March 1 is the date to have your pet licensed and registered with the city of Humboldt.
For a small fee, dogs and cats within the city limits can be registered. If the animal is found running loose, the owner can easily be identified.
New this year is a colorful Humboldt, Iowa Pet License tag on the front. The back of the tag includes a QR code that people can scan with their mobile device and information about the owner of the animal will appear. There is also a 855 toll-free number to call for a person without a phone on them or scanner capability. There is also a serial number for the pet on the back of the tag and the person finding the pet can call the number 24/7 and get information about the pet’s owner.
