Pet Licenses
If you live within the city limits of Mill Creek and own a dog or cat which is at least four months old, you are required to license your pet with the Mill Creek Police Department.  Not only is the license a requirement per the Mill Creek Municipal Code, it is also your pet's free ride home if they become lost or run away. 

A pet license may be obtained by completing the application and bringing it into the police department along with proof of your pet's up to date rabies vaccination.  The one-time fee of $5 per pet will purchase a lifetime license.  You will be provided a tag to place on your pet's collar which will be used to identify your pet, should we ever have a need to contact you.  If at any time the tag is lost, we will be happy to issue a replacement for $2.
