What are the Different Ways to License a Pet in Morgan Hill?

If you need to license a pet in Morgan Hill, there are two ways you can do it. We'll explain how to license online and how to license by mail.

How to License Online

The easier method of getting a Morgan Hill pet license is to do it online. In fact, you'll be paying a $1.95 convenience fee if you choose this method. To license online:

  1. Download the license application
  2. Complete the license application
  3. Submit the required documentation by scanning and uploading it, or submit later via fax, mail, or email
  4. Choose your payment method

How to License By Mail

If you prefer to license your pet by mail, you have that option as well. Here are the steps involved:

  1. Obtain the license application
  2. Complete the license application
  3. Prepare the required documentation
  4. Mail the completed application, required documentation, and a check or money order to the specified address

Even using the online method may require you to wait for the city to receive your documents in the mail. There's an easier way than either of these methods to get a pet license in Morgan Hill -- let DoNotPay do it for you.

How Much Does It Cost to License a Pet in Morgan Hill?

The cost to license a pet in Morgan Hill varies depending on the animal's status of being spayed or neutered. See the chart below for complete details. Note: if your pet has received a recent three-year rabies vaccination, you can opt for a three-year license.

Standard License Fees1 Year3 Year
Dog or Cat (Unaltered)$23.00$57.00
Dog or Cat (Altered)$13.00$32.00
Other Fees
Late Fee (60 Days Late)$40.00
Replacement Tag$4.00

While it's cheaper to license a pet that has been altered, it costs money to get the animal spayed or neutered, which adds to the cost of the licensing.

What are the Reasons to Register Your Pet in Morgan Hill?

Morgan Hill has an ordinance that requires you to license your pet in certain circumstances.

  • All dogs 4 months or older need to be licensed by Morgan Hill
  • Your pet must be licensed within 30 days of being in the city.
  • The late fee is added if the license has not been renewed within 60 days of the expiration of your license, or if your pet is over 4 months old and you have been in the city for more than 60 days.
  • It is voluntary to license your cat in Morgan Hill

Documents Needed to Register Your Pet in Morgan Hill

In order to get a Morgan Hill pet license, you need to complete the application and provide the city with copies of a current rabies vaccination certificate (if the rabies vaccination on file has expired) and proof of spay/neuter if you are applying for the lower license fee. Proof of spay/neuter can include a signed statement from a veterinarian or an invoice for services.

How Long Does the Pet License Last in Morgan Hill?

As stated, the pet license lasts for one year, but you can get as long as three years with a recent rabies vaccination. You must renew the license within 60 days of its expiration date or face the late penalty. If you have trouble keeping track of when the renewal is due, DoNotPay can help ensure you do the renewal on time with an immediate renewal.

Can My Pet License Be Revoked?

If you don't keep your pet under control and it causes issues, the city may be able to hold a hearing to have your pet license revoked. If that happens, you would need to go through the entire licensing process again, which is frustrating and not something you want to do. There is an alternate solution that saves you time and frustration.
