Duluth, MN (KDAL) - There are new regulations on the books for Duluth pet owners. Carrie Lane of the city’s Animal Services says the changes were made to help offset costs. But she adds that the bigger goals are to create a safer community and lower costs by encouraging pet owners spay or neuter their animals. While the cost of a license has risen from eight-dollars to ten dollars, Lane says Animal Services will offer a one-time free ride home for licensed stray or lost pets. They’re also offering a lifetime license. The city has also boosted the fee for those pets who aren’t licensed and have not been spade or neutered to $350. It had been $35.
