  *Participating Licensing Agents may or may not be willing to sell licenses to members of the public that are not current clients with them; we suggest that you call prior to stopping by in person to ensure that they offer this service.

Licensing your dog or cat gives Domestic Animal Services and the Collier County Health Department the ability to ensure that domestic pets are vaccinated against Rabies to prevent the spread of the deadly virus. A dog/cat license also provides owner information immediately, should your pet arrive at the shelter wearing its current license.

Additionally, licensing your pet you can actually save money, should your pet become lost and end up at our facility! If you claim your currently licensed and sterilized pet by the end of the legal stray hold, your pet can go home without you having to pay impound and board fees; this is available for one impoundment only.  Other fees, such as microchipping or sterilization, may still be sustained.  

A portion of the cost of the license for dogs and cats less than one year of age, and animals that are not sterilized, goes into a special spay and neuter fund which helps pay for the sterilization of homeless pets in Collier County. 

Your pet's current license replaces the need to pre-register for the Pet Friendly Shelter.  Admission to the shelter is on a first-come, first serve basis for Collier County residents.  Only cats and dogs are accepted at this time.

Collier County impounds nearly 5,000 animals every year. Of those animals, approximately 1,000 animals are wearing licenses, which enable the shelter to contact the animals' owners immediately to return the animal home.

An astonishing 95% of lost pets found with a tag make it back home. 


Effective October 1, 2018, Domestic Animal Services will offer a three-year Rabies/License Tag to coincide with three year rabies vaccinations.

 The cost to license pets varies, depending on the age of the pet, whether the animal is spayed or neutered and if you are purchasing a one-year or a three-year tag.  Prices are as follows: 

One Year Tag

Three Year Tag

Other Fees

  • $15 Rabies/License Tag fee for spayed or neutered pets
  • $35 Rabies/License Tag fee for spayed or neutered pets
  • $5 Late Fee (30 days past due)
  • $15 Rabies/License Tag fee for pets less than a year old
  • $180 Rabies/License Tag fee for unaltered pets older than one year
  • $5 Replacement Tag Fee
  • $60 Rabies/License Tag fee for unaltered pets older than one year





If you choose to sterilize your pet within 30 days of purchase of a $60 license, Domestic Animal Services will issue you a $45 refund if you provide proof of sterilization to Domestic Animal Services within 30 calendar days of purchase.
