How to Get a Pasco County License Tag

Promoting Responsible Pet Ownership


Pasco County Code of Ordinances Chapter 14 requires annual licensing for dogs and cats four months of age or older.  Most Pasco veterinarians and some neighboring county veterinarians sell licenses for pets receiving a rabies shot from their clinic.

All others can purchase the tag at the Animal Services facility in Land O'Lakes or through the mail.
