Get a license for your dog

If you have a dog that is four months old or older, it must be vaccinated for rabies and licensed. You have 30 days from when you get a dog, or from when you move to Philadelphia with your dog, to get a dog license from the Animal Care and Control Team (ACCT) of Philadelphia.

You can order a dog license online, in the mail, or in person.
