Animal Licensing

All dogs four months of age or older shall be licensed within 30 days. All dog licenses must be renewed 30 days after the date of expiration.

Due to COVID-19, animal licensing services are no longer being offered in person. If you have received a notice to license your pet or your license is expiring, you can obtain a license online or via mail.

Why Get Your Dog Licensed

It's the law, but benefits to licensing your dog include:

  • A license identifies your dog and allows you to be quickly reunited if the dog gets lost.
  • Licensed dogs are held much longer at animal shelters than unlicensed dogs.
  • A license ensures that dogs are vaccinated against rabies, a fatal disease.
  • Owners of licensed dogs receive a helpful reminder to re-vaccinate their pet prior to the rabies vaccine expiration date.
  • Rabies is a current threat to human and animal health. Dog licensing lowers the overall cost and health risk by making certain that dogs are vaccinated.

Lifetime Licenses

If you have an existing lifetime license with the City of Beaumont, the vaccination must be updated within 30 days of expiration, and no fee is required. You may email the pet’s new certificate or mail it with a note indicating you are renewing a lifetime license to:

If it has been more than 30 days since the vaccination has expired, your lifetime license will be cancelled, and a new license must be purchased.
