Please consider adopting your next family pet. Big dogs, small dogs, puppies, seniors, cats and kittens are all waiting at our shelter to find their forever homes. By adopting a shelter pet you’ll help save the lives of two animals – the pet you adopt and a homeless animal somewhere who can be rescued because of space you helped free up.

*** 2022 City Tags Available Now! ***

Is your dog a real Maryvillian?

Dog Licensing

Maryville City Ordinance requires all dogs over the age of six months to be registered and licensed.

The 2022 tags are available and can be purchased at the New Nodaway Humane Society. License renewal is required each year. The tags cost $25 per unaltered animal, or $5 for each spayed or neutered animal.

To obtain this license, you must present a rabies vaccination receipt issued within the last twelve months. You also will be asked to provide your contact information and a detailed description of your dog. Should your dog wander away from home, this gives our animal control officers the necessary information so we can quickly reunite you with your best friend.

You can purchase your license daily *BY APPOINTMENT* from 8am – 1pm or during regular business hours on days we are open (Tue/Wed/Fri/Sat). If you have questions, call us at 660.562.3333.
