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 for pick up at the Kaua’i Humane Society or you may order/renew your license online and it will be mailed to you.

Not sure if your license is current or expired? A current license is in the shape of a silver fire hydrant and is valid until 12/31/2022. If you have a silver bone tag, please use the link below to renew. 

Once you have submitted your form, a Customer Service Representative will contact you within one week to complete the purchase over the phone. If you have not heard from KHS within one week, please email:
