Fort Pierce Pet Licensing Made Fast and Easy With DoNotPay

As a pet owner, knowing your furry friend is safe and comfortable brings you great peace of mind, and your local animal control office wants to help them stay that way. After slipping away on their leash or in the midst of disaster, your pet's license tag could be what gets them back home to you. If you have questions about how to , DoNotPay can help.

Options for Submitting Your License Application

All dogs and cats must be licensed within 30 days of being in the city if they are four months or older. Fort Pierce pet owners can get their pets licensed three different ways:

  1. In-person
  2. By mail
  3. Online

Apply in Person

You can get a pet license in person at City Hall, located at 100 N US Hwy 1, Fort Pierce, FL 34950. You can also get a license at several veterinary and adoption locations:

  • Acacia Animal Clinic
  • Dr. Dan's Animal Hospital
  • Holy Family Veterinary Hospital
  • Humane Society of St. Lucie County
  • Rescue Adoption Inc.
  • Tri-County Animal Hospital

Mail Your Application

If you don't have time to get your license in person, you can mail your materials in. The application form is not required by mail, so you can just send payment and the necessary documentation to Fort Pierce Animal Licensing c/o PetData, PO Box 141929, Irving, TX 75014-1929. Checks and money orders are accepted. Be sure to send copies as none of your materials will be returned to you.

Apply Online

To save yourself a stamp and apply for your pet's license online, all you need is the documentation and a credit card. You can scan and upload the required documentation during the transaction, or send them later by mail, fax, or email. The license application will not be processed until all documents are received. If you are applying for a medically exempt unaltered pet license, you cannot complete the process online. There is a $2 convenience fee for every credit card transaction, but multiple licenses can be done on the same transaction.

You should get your license within 15 business days of your application being received. If there is a problem with processing your payment or documentation, you will be notified by mail.

Fees and Required Documentation for Your License

Licensing Fees

Unlike some other cities that allow multi-year registration, Fort Pierce licenses are only issued for a one-year period. There is a significant decrease in the cost of licensing if your pet is spayed or neutered to combat animal overpopulation. Licenses are non-transferable.

Standard Licensing FeesOne Year
Unaltered Pet$75.00
Spayed or Neutered Pet$10.00
Medical/Health Exemption for Unaltered Pet$10.00
Other Fees
Replacement Tag$5.00

License Documentation

The only required document for your pet license application is a current rabies vaccination certificate, but further documentation may make you eligible for a discount. If you wish to apply for an altered pet license and have not previously done so, you must provide documentation of the procedure such as a receipt for the veterinary services. If your veterinarian determines that your pet cannot be spayed or neutered, a signed statement is required to apply for a medically exempt pet license.

Why Your Pet Needs to Be Licensed

If your pet is lost, a license tag will help them get home faster. If your pet is found by someone other than Animal Control, they can search for the tag number online or call the phone number on the tag. Unlicensed animals, however, will be taken to the Humane Society of St. Lucie County.
