Dog Licensing

Walla Walla City and County ordinances require that all dogs over the age of 6 months living within the city limits or within the county’s dog control zone must wear a current license tag. Even dogs that live primarily indoors are required to be licensed. Your pet’s ID Licensing helps ensure the safe and timely return of your pet should it be lost, and provides proof of ownership. About 95 percent of lost animals that wear current identification are reunited with their owners.
