Residents of University Park are required by City Ordinance to register all pets and display a numbered animal tag.
By City Ordinance, the owner of each dog or cat more than four (4) months old must obtain a license for each dog or cat. At the time of application for a license, the owner must present a Certificate of Vaccination and pay a licensing fee for each dog and cat.
The Texas Board of Health approved rules that will permit dogs and cats to be vaccinated against rabies every three years. Under these requirements, dogs and cats should be vaccinated at 4 months of age, receive a booster vaccination 12 months later and every three years thereafter. Pet owners and their veterinarians may choose more frequent vaccinations. TDH officials stressed that the change from annual to triennial does not lessen the importance of having pets vaccinated against rabies.
