Why License Your Dog or Cat?

A current license is your pet’s ticket home!  A person is far more likely to help a dog/cat who is wearing a collar and tag.  A dog or cat wearing a license gets home quicker…  and it’s the law.

Not sure if your dog license is current or expired?  Current tags are silver bone shapes, these are good until 2021.

Any new licensing must be done in person or by mail.

Under HRS 22-10.5, all dogs and cats are required to have a current County of Kauai  license.  Licenses are available at the Kauai Humane Society.
