On February 7, 2017, the Carmel City Council passed the Breeder’s Permit ordinance.
This ordinance requires animal owners to get their dogs and cats spayed or neutered within six months unless they obtain a breeder’s permit from the Carmel Police Department.
Upon submission of a pending application, the applicant will be contacted by the Community Services Officer for further review. Upon completion of any additional information as requested by the Community Services Officer, the application is forwarded to the Records Division and is ready for payment and issuance. Please complete 1 application per animal.
Breeder Permits are $10 per animal and are valid for 12 months from issued date.
We accept most major credit and debit cards, exact cash or personal checks.
