COLUMBIA
A Capitol Place To Be
Dear Pet Owner:
Columbia Animal Services wishes to remind you that our City Ordinance requires that dogs and
cats be licensed annually. Failure to do so can result in a significant fine. The fee to license a spayed or
neutered pet is five dollars ($5). The fee for a non-neutered or spayed pet is twenty-five dollars ($25).
Please complete and return this form with the appropriate fee and proof of rabies inoculation and
sterilization. Your check or money order should be made payable to: The City of Columbia (no cash
please).
Columbia’s Animal Services Division has twice won in recent years the South Carolina Animal
Care and Control Association’s (S.C.A.C.C.A.) prestigious Agency of the Year Award because of its
innovative community programs. These programs include pet licensing; “pet therapy” - visiting area
nursing homes and hospitals with energetic puppies; humane education - going into community schools
and hosting field trips at the shelter and childrens barnyard to teach children about proper pet care; and
pet adoptions from our new state of the art pet adoption center at the shelter off Shop Rd.
Thank you for helping to make these improvements possible. Your pet-licensing fee helps fund
these innovative programs and defer tax dollars. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t
hesitate to contact our office.
