License Requirements:

In Oregon, every dog over six months of age is required to have a current rabies vaccination and County dog license. State law and Curry County Code requires a license. Anyone in violation is subject to substantial fines. Monies derived from Dog Licenses are used to support the needs of dogs and other domestic animals, including emergency shelter, transportation, medical care, and other services such as low-cost vaccination and spay and neuter clinics, animal disaster services, training, and behavioral education programs.

A dog license tag provides us with immediate information allowing us to return the dog directly to their home. 

In Curry County, licensed dogs get a free ride home!  To qualify for the “Free Ride Home” program:

  • Your dog must have a valid Curry County Dog license, and
  • Not be subject to any prior enforcement actions within the past 12 months.
  • A responsible adult must be present at the time of release to accept the dog.

Cat Registration:

Cat licenses are voluntary but encouraged in Curry County.  It provides identification and aids in returning a pet to their owners.  Cat registration is a one-time event with the cost of the $10.00 registration fee-paying for the identification tag and owner information tracking.

Other Animal Registration:

To help our ranchers and rural residents, owners of other animals living outside the city are encouraged to submit a voluntary registration that there are animals housed on their property.  There is NO COST for the registration and the process is performed online and only takes five minutes.  The information obtained during the registration process is confidential and is used to help identify owners of livestock who may have escaped, and to provide information to first responders during a disaster.  Please click on our Curry County Animal Rescue Program below for additional information.
