Pet Licenses

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 current license gets home quicker…  and it’s the law.

Under HRS 22-10.5, all dogs and cats are required to have a current County of Kaua’i license. Licenses are available at the Kaua’i Humane Society where they are registered. Licenses can be renewed online, but first time licenses must be done in person or via mail with appropriate documentation included.

Not sure if your license is current or expired? Current tags are silver bone shapes for dogs, and small circle shapes for cats, these are good until 12/31/2020.
