Licensing Your Pet Online


Annual (yearly) registration is required for all dogs and cats over 4 months of age residing in Terrell. Registering your dogs and cats helps us better serve you by understanding the real number of animals around us, ensuring your pets are vaccinated and healthy, and assisting us with returning your pet to you should it ever be lost.

In order to successfully register your dog or cat, you must provide proof of a current rabies vaccination certificate.


Registration Fees:

  • $10 for spayed/neutered (sterilized) dogs and cats per year
  • $15 for intact (not surgically sterilized) dogs and cats per year
  • $5 per year if the owner is over 65 years old.


You can register your pet at the Animal Adoption Center located at 2601 E. US 80 in Terrell, TX, Monday - Friday, between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (Location Map)
