Pay New License Fees

Use this page to order a brand new pet license for pets that have never been licensed in Multnomah County.

You will receive your pet’s new license ID tag in the mail. Your pet's rabies vaccine must be current. If necessary, we will contact your vet to obtain proof of a current rabies vaccination.

Note: If you have recently received a notice of infraction for no license from an officer, or are paying for an expired license, do not use this page. Instead, use the Renew & Pay for License page and enter the license number to be paid for. Alternately, you may pay for your license at a participating license vendor or at the shelter
