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 will show that it unfortunately happens all too often. A license helps animal shelter staff return your pet safely and quickly if it wanders away from home. In addition, pet licenses fund our community's animal control program. 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 or pets. Your pet license is a small investment in caring for your four-legged friend, and it benefits other animals as well.

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 directly to find out whether your family pets are due to renew their licenses or to learn more about animal services in Puyallup.

Starting February 22, 2016, the City Clerk's Office will accept passport applications by appointment only.

Uncertified wood stoves in much of the Tacoma/Pierce County area, including Puyallup, will no longer be allowed after October 1st. Any such stove must be removed or otherwise rendered inoperable, unless the property has no other adequate source of heat and the owner has applied for and received an exemption to the rule. For more information, contact the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency.
