Ogden City Animal Services is dedicated to serve the community to the best of its capacity through current offered animal services: pet licensing, chipping, and animal control and animal law enforcement.
Pet licenses are renewable every year contingent upon a current rabies vaccination. An updated rabies tag does not take the place of an updated pet license; a pet owner may opt for a three-year rabies vaccine for their pet, but must also renew their pet’s license each year. To renew or obtain a pet license for your dog, cat, or ferret, go to:
Ogden City encourages all pets to be micro-chipped. A citizen is able to micro-chip their pet through many commercial places: veterinarian offices, adoptions centers, etc.
Ogden City animal service officers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays to enforce city codes and ordinances relating to domestic pets. They can be reached by telephone or through making a request via the smart phone application iOgden. The report through iOgden will only be handled if contact information is supplied. Animal service officers handle complaints and concerns about neighborhood dogs and cats such as animal bites or attacks.
Animal service officers enforce the leash laws defined in Ordinance 13-2-6:A which mandates humane restraint for all pets in all public areas, i.e., businesses, etc. Dogs and cats shall be leashed at all times they are off their own property. In all public areas including parks, walkways, playgrounds, streets, hiking trails, and common areas all dogs and cats must be leashed. The only exception is at Ogden’s new Dog Park where designated areas are completely fenced and confined to offer an off-leash experience for dogs both large and small.
Animal bites are extremely serious, and Animal Services needs to be notified immediately if these occur. If you or someone you know has been bitten by a pet or a feral or wild animal in Ogden City, call 911 if you seek medical assistance, and call, every time, Ogden City Animal Services immediately.
