Alachua County Animal Resources reminds residents to license pets   

Pet license tag collar

Alachua County Animal Resources sent out a reminder to residents to license their pets each year.  

The required pet licenses can be ordered online. Pet owners can license multiple pets at the same time and upload the required documents. All major credit cards are accepted.  

A license tag helps animal resources officers and shelter employees locate a lost pet’s owner information.

License fees for cats, dogs, and ferrets are $25. Alachua County pet licenses are valid for one year from the date of rabies vaccination and will expire on the anniversary of the rabies vaccination.  

“Required pet licensing is easier than ever,” said Alachua County Animal Resources Director Julie Johnson in a press release. “Your lost pet’s current license could be their ticket home.”

All dogs, cats, and ferrets over four months old must have their rabies vaccinations and be licensed with Alachua County. 

To license by mail, send a copy of your pet’s current rabies along with a check payable to “Alachua County Animal Resources Licensing” to:
