Licenses for Pet Owners

  • Animal license tags are available for dogs and cats.
  • License tags are required for all dogs over four months of age. The dog must be registered with Miami-Dade County and wear the tag at all times.
  • Tags are available for cats, but they are not required. Since cats are clever enough to take off their collars, a microchip is recommended instead of a tag.
