Licenses may be purchased for 1 or 3 years as long as the rabies vaccination is valid for the same period. Rabies laws state that the license term cannot exceed the rabies expiration date.

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

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

Required Paperwork

  1. A current rabies vaccination certificate is required if the rabies vaccination on file has expired. Please 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.

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