Dog License Tag

The metal tag issued at the initial purchase is your dog's permanent license tag. You will not receive a new tag upon renewal.

If your dog's tag becomes chewed, worn or lost, you can purchase a replacement tag for $5.  Either visit the two Santa Cruz Animal Shelter locations or mail a check for the $5 fee to:

Santa Cruz County Dog Licensing
2200 7th Avenue
Santa Cruz, CA 95062

Your pet’s replacement tag will be sent in the mail within two weeks.
