Half-off Dog Licensing Begins May 1


Pocatello residents will be able to license their canine companions for half price during the month of May.

Starting May 1, Pocatello Animal Services will be offering dog licenses for half-off. During the month, licenses for dogs that are not spayed or neutered will cost $10 while licenses for dogs that are spayed or neutered are $5. To help streamline the process, licenses for dogs will only be available for purchase at the Pocatello Animal Shelter, City of Pocatello Mayor’s Office, McKee’s Pet, Garden and Feed Center, and local veterinarians.

“Having your pet licensed and microchipped can help get them home to you faster in the event they get loose,” said Danielle Garcia, Animal Services Director. “If an owner has maintained the information contained on the chip, we can usually get the pet home within a matter of hours.”  

Cat licenses are also available for purchase at the Pocatello Animal Shelter. When a cat reaches three-months of age, owners must purchase a license and in doing so, provide their name, address, phone number, as well as proof the cat has been microchipped. The cost to register a cat is $5. If the cat is not microchipped, animal services staff can chip the animal for $15. The animal’s microchip serves as the license and the animal will not receive a City identification tag.

Residents with questions about the licensing process can contact shelter staff at 208-234-6156.
