A license is valid only when the required veterinarian's rabies vaccination certificate is current and a copy is provided to the City. The annual charge for a pet license is $10.00 for altered (females are spayed; males are neutered) animals and $20.00 for unaltered animals.

Chickens are considered farm animals and are only allowed in agriculturally zoned areas. The City of Pine Island does not allow animals designated as farm animals within the residentially zoned areas of the City.
