Pet Licensing & Permits

The City of Portland requires pet owners to register their dog and/or cat on an annual basis, as well as to properly tag their animals with a city license tag and rabies vaccination tag issued by a licensed veterinarian. These tags often have helped reunite a lost pet with their family. 

Registration is $5 per animal and requires proof of a current rabies vaccination. Upon registration, your animal will be issued a city identification tag. Several area veterinarians work in conjunction with the City to provide City license tags for animals vaccinated in their clinics.
