Request a Dog or Cat Tag Transfer
You can transfer the ownership of a dog or cat from one person to another at the Animal Services Pet Adoption and Protection Center. A completed Transfer of Ownership form is required if a dog or cat is being transferred to another county in Florida. As a result, your pet's Miami-Dade account will be closed.
Dog or Cat Tags
- The dog's or cat's old tag number will be transferred and valid until its expiration date. A new tag will be required only if the existing tag has expired.
- If the new owner decides to purchase a new tag prior to the old tag's expiration, the fee will not be prorated. Full price must be paid.
