Seniors age 65 and over may license one spayed or neutered pet free of charge. Additional pets and unaltered pets must be licensed at full rate.

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

Due Date

License shall be renewed upon expiration. A late fee will be applied if renewed 30 days after expiration. If you are licensing for the first time, you must purchase a license within 30 days of obtaining a pet over the age of 4 months or within 30 days of moving into the City of Sunnyvale.
