How to Successfully Get Your Prescott Pet License

Do you need to get a pet license in Prescott? If you've already attempted to get your license on your own, you've probably noticed that the process isn't as simple as it seems. Obtaining your pet license requires various steps and a lot of paperwork. Luckily, getting your pet license doesn't have to be a difficult process. DoNotPay offers a quicker, easier, and automated solution to getting your Prescott pet license. Today we're going to share how you can get your license and why using DoNotPay is the best option.

What Steps Do I Need to Take to Get a Pet License in Prescott?

A pet license is a requirement set by each state. For instance, the city of Prescott states that dogs must have a license within 60 days if the dog is 4 months or older. Licensing for all pets must be with the City of Prescott and each license expires every year on December 31st.

You can get a license either online, by mail, or in person.

Online

If you want to cut down on time, pet owners can obtain a license for their pet by going online. There is a $1.95 convenience fee that will be applied to your transaction. If you have multiple pets, you can register all of them in one transaction.

By-Mail

If you prefer, you can also register your pet by mail. Here is what you'll need to do if you choose to register your pet by mail.

  • Include all requested paperwork
  • Include a check or money order payable to the "City of Prescott" with the licensing fee associated with your pet
  • Mail everything to the following address:

Prescott Animal Licensing

c/o PetData

PO Box 141929

Irving, TX 75014-1929

In-Person

Another option to obtain a license for your pet is to go in person. You will need to go to Prescott City Hall, which is located at 201 S. Cortez Street in Prescott. If you go in person, don't forget to bring your pet's rabies vaccination and spay/neuter certificate (if applicable).

What Paperwork Do I Need?

Before successfully licensing your pet in Prescott, you will need to gather some important documentation. Here are the required documents that pet owners need to know.

  • Current rabies vaccination certificate: This is required if the current vaccination on file has since expired. It's important to note that rabies vaccinations must be valid through October 1st.
  • Record of spay/neuter certificate: You will need to be able to provide proof that your pet has been spayed/neutered if the pet has been altered since the last license renewal and you're interested in a lower fee. This could be a statement from a veterinarian or even an invoice for the service.
  • Pet's age and date of birth: If you are trying to obtain a discount for your pet that is 12 months of age or younger, you will need to provide a record of its age and date of birth.

What if I Need to Update My Pet's Information?

Sometimes your pet's status changes before the end of your pet's licensing period. If this does happen, you have an opportunity to update your pet's information. Even more, it is encouraged that you always have an accurate description and status of your pet on file as this information is beneficial if your pet becomes lost. Here is some information that should be updated about your pet.

  1. Update your pet's breed, color, sex, or date of birth
  2. Rabies vaccine information
  3. You're no longer the pet's owner
  4. Your pet is deceased

What Does it Cost to Obtain a Pet License in Prescott?

The cost of obtaining a pet license in Prescott depends on the spay or neuter status of your pet, as well as its age. Late fees also apply to any licenses that are requested after the March 31st cut-off date each year.
