Dog Licensing

All dogs visiting Mans Best Field MUST be registered with the City of Mansfield, even if you live in another city. 

How do I know if my dog has a current city license?

The City of Mansfield’s registration tags are color coded. The 2020 tags are blue and rabies tags are red (see image). If your dog’s tags are a different color, their license is not current. 

tagsWhat is required to register my dog?

The application requires the owner’s name and contact information, dog’s name, breed, age and current vaccinations.

If you do not have a copy of the rabies certificate, you can contact your veterinarian and have them email or fax it directly to the shelter.

Tags will be available shortly after the application is submitted and your rabies certificate has been verified. You have the option of picking up the tags at the shelter during normal business hours or having them mailed directly to you. 

Applications completed in person during normal hours at the shelter will receive tags almost immediately; applications received off-hours or opting for mailed tags will wait a few days to receive the tags. 

The licensing fee is $15, but there is a $5 discount for those dogs and cats that are spayed/neutered. There is an additional $5 discount if your dog or cat is micro-chipped.


Any questions about the process or status of your application should be directed to Mansfield Animal Care & Control, (817) 276-4799.
