Each license provides a unique number which identifies your pet as belonging to you as long as the tag and collar are worn. Your name, address, and phone number, as well as a description of your pet, is kept on file at King County Animal Control. Records are updated annually to keep information current. If someone finds your pet, they can call the phone number on the license and receive this information. If we find your pet, we will contact you. The tag your pet will wear serves as a permanent pet license tag for the life of your pet. The tag is made of durable stainless steel and does not require annual replacement. If your pet loses the tag, or it is destroyed, a new one can be obtained at Worthington Licensing for a small replacement fee. A renewal notice will be mailed to you each year, but when you renew, your pet will retain the same tag.
The fine for an unlicensed pet is $125 for a spayed/neutered pet and $250 for an unaltered pet. For more information please visit Regional Animal Services of King County
