Clallam County Requires All Dogs & Cats to be Licensed

The benefits of obtaining a license for your pet include:

  • Lost pets are quickly returned to their owners. Pet owners can be easily found by entering the license number online.
  • Safer neighborhoods for families and pets. License fees help support field services and investigations to address cruelty, neglect, loose pets, aggressive dogs and bite reports.
  • A safe haven for homeless animals. OPHS provides approximately 1,500 animals a year with food, water, healthcare shelter, exercise, foster and adoption services.

Note: If you received a tag from your veterinarian, this is not a pet license. A license can be purchased at the Humane Society, some veterinarian’s offices, Clallam County Sheriff’s office and the county courthouse.
