CITY OFFERS ON-LINE PET LICENSING
Beginning Monday November 2, 2009 Lee’s Summit residents may license their pets from the comfort of their own home. Residents will need only the current rabies vaccination certificate and a credit card. To license a pet on-line go to: www.lspets.net and follow the prompts for the licensing procedure. After verification of the information entered during the licensing process, a pet license will be mailed directly to the home. All licenses purchased in November and December will be valid for all of 2010.
Residents may still license their pets in person, or by mail, by taking a copy of the pet’s current rabies vaccination certificate and proof of the pet’s sterilization (if applicable) to the Animal Control Facility at 1991 SE Hamblen Road or City Hall at 220 SE Green Street. By mail residents need to provide a copy of the pet’s current rabies vaccination certificate, complete with a return mailing address and phone number, along with a check or money order made payable to “City of Lee’s Summit” sent to:
Lee’s Summit Animal Control
10 NE Tudor Road
Lee’s Summit, MO 64086
