Fees are not required for service animals that assist the hearing, seeing, or physically impaired.

To promote microchipping of family pets, a device that helps with the quick return of lost pets to their owners, the cost for licensing non-microchipped pets is higher than for licensing those that are microchipped.

Overpayments of $3 or less will be applied as a donation to the Irving Animal Care Fund. If you want to make a voluntary donation to the Animal Care Fund, please note the amount of the donation on your paperwork and add it to the license fee.

Due Date

Payment for your license is due within 30 days of your pet’s vaccination date or prior license expiration date.
