Senior License Fees

A free license is available for pets owned by a senior citizen (60+). A free license is also available for a guide or leader dog for a blind person, a hearing dog for a deaf or audibly impaired person, or a service dog for a physically limited person.

If you qualify for a free license, you may obtain a license by mail, by fax (888-738-5556) or by submitting electronic copies of your documentation by email. Free licenses may be renewed by phone at 1-800-574-1453 if the pet's rabies vaccination on file is current (initial licenses cannot be obtained by phone).

Please note free licenses cannot be obtained through the online payment system.
