All cats and dogs six months of age and older living within the City of Everett are required by law to be licensed. Pet licenses identify animals should they become lost, and the revenue helps support the animal shelter and reuniting animals with their families.
If you are not sure whether your address is within Everett City Limits, you can use the City's online search tool. (If your address does not appear, it is not in the City of Everett. Check with Snohomish County or your City Hall for licensing requirements.)

Service Dog Licenses
Signed Service Dog affidavit required. Please call or visit the Everett Animal Shelter for more information.
Homes with more than 2 dogs or 2 cats need to apply for a facility license. This policy helps ensure that people who have more than the average number of pets have the ability to properly care for them.
Please pick up a facility application at the Everett Animal Shelter or contact us at 425-257-6000 to request an application by mail. Once the application is received, an inspection of the facility must be scheduled. Any problems identified will be noted and discussed, and the inspecting officer will work with the owner to correct any deficiencies.
Facilities licenses must be renewed on an annual basis.

|All or some animals intact||$75|
