Pet Licenses

Pet Licenses

Renew, replace, or register for a new pet license in time and avoid late fees.

Did you know that in most states and counties, you're legally required to register your pet? Licenses are important because they not only ensure that pets are properly vaccinated and spayed/neutered, but it also makes it easier to find and return lost pets.

And because pet registration is required by law, failing to keep your licenses up to date can result in penalties and expensive late fees.

How can you get a pet License on your own?

While some counties offer online application options, a majority of locations require applications to be sent by mail or in-person.

How much do license fees cost?

The pet registration and license renewal/replacement processes vary by county in each state, as do the fees. In most cases, however, properly spayed/neutered pets cost significantly less to register than non-sterilized pets. Most counties also offer a senior exemption and reduced fee for elderly applicants.

What documents do I need to register my pet?

In most cases, you'll need documentation proving that your pet was spayed/neutered (if that applies), as well as records of a rabies vaccine that shows the expiry date. If you are renewing a license, you also need to provide your license/microchip number.
