Pet licenses for dogs and cats in the village of Hoffman Estates must be renewed before Thursday, Nov. 1. They are currently on sale.
All pets that are six months old must be licensed, including foster pets. Residents fostering dogs or cats must obtain a pet license for each animal regardless of the length of time the animal is fostered. Pet licenses cannot be transferred to another foster animal after they have found their forever home.
When applying for a pet license, please provide a copy of your statement from a veterinarian that the dog or cat is currently inoculated against rabies. If you currently have pets licensed, you should be receiving a letter in the mail with your renewal information.
Pet tags purchased after Nov. 30 are subject to $1.50/month penalty per tag. Pet tags are available for $5 each, or $2 for senior citizens' pet tags (limit two). Tags are needed for Seeing Eye/service dogs, but the fee is waived.
Pet tags may be purchased at the village hall, 1900 Hassell Road, from Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
