Pet Licensing/Control

A pet license will help the Lake Stevens Animal control quickly identify and your return family pet if your dog or cat is lost or strays. It is the law that all dogs and cats over the age of three months in the City of Lake Stevens are licensed (LSMC 5.12.010). Lake Stevens’ residents are limited to owning three dogs and/or cats per household.

The City of Lake Stevens offers a “life-time tag” for $20 and $4 for a replacement tag.

Animal tags are free for the following:

·       If you license your dog or cat within 60 days of ownership

·       If you are a senior citizen (62+ years old)

·       For guide dogs and service animals.

Dog and cat licenses can be purchased at City Hall at 1812 Main Street. You can also receive a pet tag in the mail by downloading and completing an application and mail with the appropriate fees to:
