What are the benefits of having a current pet license?

  • Free ride home: In most cases, pets that are wearing current licenses get a free ride home if they become lost and are found by an Animal Services Officer.

  • It alerts the community to the fact the pet is owned, increasing the likelihood the pet will get back home without coming into the shelter. During a recent 30 day period, 43 found pets were reported by community members – none were wearing tags.

  • In the event a pet bites a person, pets that are not current on their rabies vaccination will have to be quarantined at animal services.

  • Pet owner information can be tracked online by officers 24/7 and the community, to the extent allowed by the owner, to get pets back home safely.

  • And did you know that your pet licensing dollars go into a designated fund to help support animal welfare programs in Osceola County? They do! So when you purchase a pet license, you are not only helping to keep your pet safe but are also helping other pets in your community.
