 How do I license my service animal?

 When will I get my license tag?

  • Each pet is assigned a blue, five digit license tag the first time they are licensed with the City of Auburn. This metal tag is permanently assigned to your pet and you will not receive a new tag during the renewal process in future years unless the replacement tag fee is paid.

  • If you license your pet for the first time online, we will mail your tag and license receipt within 10 business days from the day we receive your completed license application and payment.
