Your Pet License: Increased Safety & Community Investment

Pet licenses offer safety and peace of mind for families and their pets. While many pet owners believe that their dog or cat won’t ever get lost, one look at the pets currently waiting for adoption provides proof that it unfortunately happens all too often. A license helps animal shelter staff return your pet safely and quickly if they wander away from home. In addition, pet licenses fund the entire animal control program in our community. Without the support of responsible pet owners, there would be no shelter or food for homeless animals, no adoption program, and no one to provide assistance when animals threaten your family and pets. Your pet license is a small investment that tells everyone that you care about animals in your community.

Licensing your pet is easy and inexpensive! You can submit your completed application by mail or license your pet in person at the Puyallup City Hall Utility Billing Counter (333 S. Meridian, 3rd Floor) or the Puyallup Police Department (311 W. Pioneer). The cost of licensing is just $10/cat or $14/dog for spayed/neutered animals.

The City of Puyallup works in partnership with other local cities to provide efficient and cost-effective animal services through “Metro Animal Services.” You can contact Metro Animal Services to find out whether your family pets are due to renew their licenses or to learn more about animal services in Puyallup.
