Required Paperwork

  1. A rabies vaccination certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian must be submitted if the rabies vaccination has expired. An invoice or statement of services is not sufficient as proof of rabies vaccination. Check your certificate for correct address and pet information.
  2. Please include a spay/neuter certificate if the pet has been altered since the last licensing period.
  3. If you are applying for a senior license, proof of age is required.

Your paperwork will not be returned to you, so please retain a copy of your documents for your records.

Licenses must be purchased for the same term as the rabies vaccination. If submitting a certificate for a 3-year rabies vaccination, you must purchase a 3-year license. If a one-year vaccination was given, you may only purchase a one-year license.

Please consider making a voluntary donation to benefit the animals in the care of the Fulton County Animal Services. Thank you.

The cost for licensing unaltered or fertile pets is higher than that for licensing spayed or neutered pets in order to promote sterilization and to reduce pet overpopulation and starvation.

Due Date

Payment for your license is due within 30 days of the expiration of your current license. If you are licensing for the first time, you must purchase a license when the pet reaches 4 months of age or within 30 days of moving into Fulton County.
