Permits, violations & licenses

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, to get a dog license from the Animal Care and Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly).

To apply for a dog license, visit the ACCT Philly website.
