The Pet Avocation permit was designed to allow those who are responsible pet owners in Omaha and Waterloo to have up to 5 dogs and up to 6 cats, but no more than eight pets total.

Bellevue residents may apply for a pet avocation permit which allows up to 5 dogs and up to 5 cats – but no more than 6 pets total - unless they have a kennel, pre-existing cattery permit or commercial cattery permit.

You will be prompted to complete a form immediately after payment. Please complete this so we can schedule the necessary inspection to complete your application.

Because ACOs are responding to emergency calls, applicants must provide a four-hour window for inspections, which can be on any day excluding Sundays and holidays.
