Care for Your Pet with a Pet License

Dogs and cats living in Newcastle require pet licenses that must be renewed annually. Regional Animal Services of King County or RASKC licenses pets for the City of Newcastle and provides animal control services.

You may obtain new or renewed pet licenses at City Hall with payment by CHECK ONLY. Receive this service online and pay with a credit card at this RASKC website, or visit the Newcastle QFC to obtain or renew a pet license using a credit card as payment.

New Permanent Pet License Tags: King County now issues permanent pet license tags for all new and renewed pet licenses. The permanent tag, made of stainless steel, replaces the annually-issued aluminum pet license tag and is intended to last for the life of the pet. Pet licenses are required to be renewed annually, but the tag is now permanent.

Replacement of lost or damaged permanent tags can be done in person at more than 100 locations throughout King County, or by mail. Replacement of a permanent tag is currently $5. Contact the pet license office at 206-296-2712 or via email at [email protected] for more information.

For answers to pet licensing questions, contact City Hall or RASKC at the Pet Information Line
