Citrus County has made it easier and more convenient to license your pet with three different options available for residents purchasing or renewing a pet license – online, by mail or in person.
Options available for Citrus County residents purchasing or renewing a pet license are:
ONLINE: You can license online by going to www.PetData.com and enter your zip code. You can license multiple pets at the same time, and easily upload required documents. All major credit cards are accepted, and a small convenience fee will apply per transaction.
MAIL: To license by mail, simply mail a copy of your pet’s current rabies certificate and any other applicable documentation, along with your check made payable to Citrus County BOCC, to Citrus County Animal Services, C/O PetData, PO Box 141929, Irving, TX 75014.
IN PERSON: Pet licenses may also be purchased in person at Citrus County Animal Services and participating veterinary clinics. Be sure to bring along your pet’s current rabies certificate. For more information call Animal Services at: (352) 746-8400.
Remember, cats and dogs and ferrets over the age of 4 months must be licensed with Citrus County. The County encourages pet owners to spay and neuter their pets. License fees for altered pets are $10 for a 1-year license or $30 for a 3-year license. Licenses for unaltered pets are $35 for a 1-year license or $105 for a 3-year license. A rabies vaccination certificate including vaccination and expiration dates is required to obtain a license. Proof of spay/neuter is required for the altered pet rate.
Purchasing a license and attaching it to your pet’s collar is one of the most important things you can do as a responsible pet owner. Displaying a current license tag on your pet’s collar makes it easy for animal control officers and shelter employees to quickly locate a lost pet’s owner information. It could be your pet’s ticket home!
