Animal Licenses
Get your pet licensed! It's easy and gives you an inexpensive insurance policy for your pet's safety as well as peace of mind should your pet ever get lost.

Thousands of pets find their way into animal care and control centers each year without any form of identification. Unfortunately, without identification it's nearly impossible to reunite them with their families. Purchasing a pet license will ensure that your special companion can be returned home quickly and safely.

The law requires that all dogs over the age of three months have a license and rabies vaccination (the vaccination must be administered by a licensed veterinarian). The law covers all unincorporated areas in Maricopa County, the Town of Queen Creek and all other municipalities within Maricopa County, with the exception of Fountain Hills and Native American reservations.
