[ARCHIVED] Half-Priced Dog Licenses from Pocatello Animal Services for the Month of May

Half Priced Dog License Fee May 2023 - Copy

All dogs over the age of three (3) months that reside within the Pocatello city limits must be licensed and have the license tag affixed to their collar at all times. 

To help make that easier, license fees are half-price during the month of May. Prices are as follows for the month of May: 

Non-spayed/non-neutered - $10 

Spayed/neutered - $5 

Senior citizen (60+) rate for non-spayed/non-neutered - $9 

Senior citizen (60+) rate for spayed/neutered - $2.50 

Duplicate/replacement license - $1 

*Pet licenses are effective June 1 through May 31 of the following year

To be eligible for the senior citizen rate, residents must be age 60 years and older. To find a location near you where pet licenses are sold or to learn more, visit

Cats that reside within the city are not required to be licensed, but licenses are available if desired or if required by a landlord. 

Pet licenses can be purchases at Pocatello Animal Services, Pocatello City Hall (dogs only), McKee’s Feed and Garden Center (dogs only), and some veterinarian clinics (check with your veterinarian to see if they sell licenses). 

Multiple Animal Housing Permits must also be renewed each year starting in May. The fee is $25 for the first year and $10 each year to renew. The fee goes up to $15 to renew after May 31. 

If a person inside the Pocatello city limits has three or more dogs and/or six or more cats, they are required by the City to get a Multiple Animal Housing Permit. The pet owner can pick up an application at the Animal Shelter or can print one here:

Pocatello Animal Services is accessible to persons with disabilities. Program access accommodations may be provided with three (3) days advance notice by contacting Skyler Beebe at, 208.234.6248, or 5815 South 5th Avenue, Pocatello, ID.
