All cats and dogs six months of age and older within the City of Everett are required by law to be licensed. Pet licenses identify animals should they become lost, and the revenue helps support the cost of providing animal control services and reuniting animals with their families.

A license application can be downloaded and mailed with a check to: 
Everett Animal Shelter
333 Smith Island Road
Everett, WA 98201

You can also purchase your pet’s license in person at Everett Animal Shelter or: 

City of Everett Clerk’s Office
2930 Wetmore Avenue
Everett, WA 98201
