Why does the Board collect fees or monetary fines?

The Board collects payments for program license and inspection fees as required under Minnesota law. These fees are utilized to support Board programs that keep Minnesota’s domestic animals and human communities healthy.

The Board may also assess monetary fines (known as administrative or civil penalties) to Minnesota residents who fail to comply with Minnesota laws enforced by the Board.
