Facility Licenses

Facility Licensing

Homes with more than 2 dogs or 2 cats need to apply for a facility license. This policy helps ensure that people who have more than the average number of pets have the ability to properly care for them.


Please call 425-257-6000 to request an application by mail. Once the application is received, an inspection of the facility must be scheduled. Any problems identified will be noted and discussed, and the inspecting officer will work with the owner to correct any deficiencies.


Facilities licenses must be renewed on an annual basis.
