Pet license fee changes in January 2019

Fee changes enacted by the City of Seattle went into effect on Jan. 1, 2019.

License fees:

Type One-Year Two-Year
Cat–Altered* $26 $52
Cat–Unaltered $79 $158
Dog–Altered* $37 $74
Dog–Unaltered $105 $210

Pig, initial one-year $126 N/A
Pig, renewal $32 N/A

*Gold/FLASH cardholders receive 50 percent off the license fee for altered animals only.

A pet license is the best way to ensure that, should your pet become lost, you are reunited as quickly as possible. A license is also required for dogs, cats, miniature goats and potbellied pigs in the Seattle city limits. Not having a pet license could lead to a fine of $125 per unlicensed pet.

To purchase or renew your pet’s license, go to or call 206-386-4262.
