Dog Licensing

Dog Licensing Made Easy As Mono County Launches Partnership with DocuPet! 


--- Attention Mammoth Lakes Residents ---

Mono County Animal Services does not issue dog licenses to dogs living within the town of Mammoth Lakes, if you are a resident of the town of Mammoth Lakes, you may acquire a dog license through 


Licensing dogs in Mono County is now easier, modernized, and more valuable for everyone.

Mono County is delighted to launch its partnership with DocuPet, a world-leading pet profile, lost pet, and licensing platform.

Pet owners now get free access to DocuPet’s HomeSafe™ 24/7 lost pet service, and a variety of colorful and unique designer tags linked to a secure online profile when they license their pets with Mono County.


Through our new licensing process with DocuPet, residents have the option to select a generic County-branded license tag at no additional charge or may upgrade to one of DocuPet’s colorful designer tag styles for $15.

Each DocuPet tag, generic or designer, doubles as a dog’s official license in Mono County. Furthermore, 20% of every designer tag purchase is donated to Mono County Animal Services.

Previously, licenses expired annually on June 30, now Mono County allows pet owners to purchase a term of 1 year, 2 years or 3 years, to coincide with the date of the rabies vaccination.   

Mono County holds a licensing and low cost vaccinations clinic at different locations throughout the County during the first three Saturdays of June.
