Register Your Pet
Register your pet with Alachua County Animal Services. New residents have 30 days from their move-in date to purchase an Alachua County pet license tag. A current rabies vaccination is required to register your pet at the cost of $15.00 for dogs and $8.00 for cats. You must show proof of the rabies vaccination at the ACAS office in person or by mail. A licensing fee is then assessed and your pet is registered. A tag will be issued and the tag must be worn by your pet at all times or you can be fined $50.00.

Do you love cats and dogs, but can’t manage to own your own pet at this time? Check the animal shelters in town and become a volunteer. Volunteers walk dogs, play with cats, and groom the animals.
