Mail or In-Person Licensing

The easiest way to purchase or renew your cat or dog's license is to use our online system. You can also perform pet licensing tasks via mail or in person.

Mail in your license application or renewal payment

If you prefer to visit us in person or mail in your payment, or if you are licensing a miniature goat or potbellied pig, please download the Seattle pet license application. To use the fillable PDF function and complete the form digitally before printing, please save a copy of the application to your computer. You may also print the blank form and complete by hand.

Mail the completed form with payment to:

Make checks payable to City of Seattle.

License your pet at a Protect Your Pet event

Third Saturday of each month, 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Seattle Animal Shelter, 2061 15th Ave. W., Seattle

Each month, the Seattle Animal Shelter and Good Neighbor Vet host Protect Your Pet, a license and rabies vaccination clinic event at the shelter. Purchase or renew your pet's license during this clinic and receive a free rabies vaccine for the licensed pet. Microchips and other vaccines are also available for an additional fee.

Services are first-come, first-served. All dogs must be leashed, and all cats must be in carriers. Previous vaccination records are not required, but you are encouraged to bring them, if available.

Visit our license partners

You may purchase or renew a Seattle pet license any of the City's customer service centers. You may also purchase or renew your pet's license at several veterinary clinics, pet retail stores and other neighborhood locations. Please be aware that most locations take only cash and checks, and do not take credit cards for pet license payments.
