OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Do you live in the metro and own a dog, cat or mini pig?

Be sure to license your furry friend by Sunday's deadline to avoid late fees.

According to the Nebraska Humane Society (NHS), licensing pets are one of the best ways to make sure they come back home if they get lost.

It's also the law to annually license pets in most metro-area communities, including the following:

Below are ways to license pets, courtesy of the NHS website.

  • License your pet online
  • By mail
  • At participating vet clinics
  • In person at the Nebraska Humane Society *Please note that NHS is under construction. Due to limited space we have moved our licensing location to the Center for Humane Education. It is the building to west of the main shelter, behind Walgreens. (As you face the main building, it's to the right of the purple construction fence. Look for directional signs.) Parking is a challenge so you might have to walk, however there is a handicapped space right in front of the entrance. Thank you and we're sorry for the inconvenience!

Please Note: License fees are a non-refundable city fee. A $5 processing fee will be charged on all licensing transactions (including in-person payments made at NHS).
