Licensing Your Animal

New Dog Licensing Locations


Effective immediately, dog licenses will only be available through the Inyo County Sheriff's Office.  This change does not affect the annual licensing clinics held every year, nor does it eliminate the option to complete your renewal licensing online or by mail.  Initial licenses will be issued in person at the four locations below.  For initial licenses, please provide a spay/neuter certificate and rabies certificate.
