Animal licensing is required in the City of Pasco for all dogs. Licensing cats is optional. Licensing is for the well being of the pets to help ensure that if 1 becomes lost it can be returned home. Without a license, a lost pet may be impounded and potentially adopted or euthanized. Pet license fees help subsidize animal control efforts.
We want to help the Pasco community be responsible pet owners; it is required by city ordinance that all pets have current rabies vaccines with a tag identification number and the expiration date.
