Breeding Permit

​The ​"intact animal permit" has been replaced by a "breeding permit." 

​A person who owns an intact animal intended for breeding must obtain a breeding permit for each intact animal, and the permit must be renewed annually. ​​​

The animal must be approved by a veterinarian to breed within 90 days of applying for the permit, in addition to being microchipped and vaccinated for rabies. ​​The owner must be a member of a purebred dog or cat club, or licensed for breeding by the Texas Occupation Code. ​

To obtain a breeding permit, a person must submit an application to Dallas Animal Services, and pay a $250 permit fee.
