Pet licensing in Larimer County
Licenses are not only the law in Larimer County, they also make a difference.
A license is your pet’s ticket home.
We reunite 9 out of 10 stray dogs and 1 out of 4 stray cats with their owners.
A license greatly increases the chances of your pet being returned to you should it become lost.
Licenses protect public health and safety.
More than 56,000 animals are licensed each year and that number continues to grow.
Licenses allow us to better track the number of rabies-vaccinated pets in our community to protect public health.
Your pet’s license helps provide second chances to homeless animals.
Nearly 6,000 homeless, lost, abused, unwanted, and abandoned animals come through our doors each year.
Larimer Humane Society is an independent nonprofit. Your licensing fee helps cover animal control service contracts throughout Larimer County, ensuring our doors are open for animals in their time of need.
