Do I have to have a license for my pets?

Yes. Section 14-32 of the City’s Ordinances states:

Every owner of a dog, four months or more of age, not confined at all times to an enclosed area and thereby rendered incapable of scratching or biting any person, including the owner, shall cause the dog to be inoculated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian at such intervals as may be established pursuant to the Animal Control Act, 510 ILCS 5/1 et seq.
