Dog Licensing

All dogs three months or older in San Luis must be licensed. Dog licenses are essential to identify and locate your pet if they get lost. Licenses must be renewed by November 1st in any calendar year. (City Code Chapter 6.05  and A.R.S. §11-1010) furthermore, your dog is required to wear their license at all times while outside of the residence. This will make it easier to identify and return your lost pet.

Dog owners can purchase a license for one year or up to three years. The cost of the license depends on its length and if the dog is sterilized or not.

License fees:

If a license is issued less than six months before November 1st, the applicant will only be charged $8 for a sterilized pet; $15 for a nonsterilized pet.

A penalty fee of no more than $35.00 may be charged to those found late in obtaining a license, similar to the penalties mandated by state law.

How do I get a license?

To apply for a new dog license or renew an expired license, you will need together the following information about your dog(s):

  • A completed City of San Luis Pet License Application (pdf link) or renewal notice. 
  • A copy (not the original) of your pet’s rabies vaccination certificate.
  • A copy (not the original) of your pet’s spay/neuter certificate to get the discounted rate for sterilized pets.
  • A photo of your pet.

License in person:  once you have gathered all the information required, you will bring your pet’s information along with payment to City Hall during regular business hours. 

City Hall is located at 1090 E Union Street and is open Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
