- A license is required for any person to have a dog over the age of 3 months. The license fee for animals who are spayed or neutered is half the cost of the fee for intact animals.
SECTION THREE: LICENSE AND REGISTRATION REQUIRED
A: All dogs or cats kept, harbored or maintained by their owners in the City of Blytheville, Arkansas shall be licensed if over three (3) months of age. Licenses shall be issued by the City Collector in the City of Blytheville upon producing a certificate, signed by a licensed veterinarian, that the dog or cat has been vaccinated against the rabies virus within six (6) months prior to the time of application for license and upon payment of a license tax for each dog or cat. The cost will be five dollars ($5.00) for each dog or cat which is spayed or neutered and ten dollars ($10.00) for those which are not. The owner shall state at the time of application for license and place upon printed forms provided for such purpose, their name and address and the name, breed, color, sex and age of each dog or cat owned or kept by them. The provisions of this section shall not be intended to apply to dogs or cats whose owners are non-residents temporarily within the city nor to “seeing eye dogs” which are properly trained to assist blind people when said dog is actually being used by a blind person for the purpose of aiding them in going from place to place.
