YCSO online dog licensing program in full swing


YAVAPAI COUNTY – Last year, the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office launched a Web site providing dog owners the ability to obtain licenses, maintain pet records, and even report an animal missing, and YCSO is encouraging more Yavapai County residents to take advantage of this convenient program and apply. This service is provided free of charge to any dog owner in Yavapai County.

Once you create an account at, the following tools are available:

  • Dog License tools online – you can purchase a 1 to 3 year license. A description of Arizona dog licensing requirements may be viewed on the homepage.
  • You can renew your license online now for the same period as your rabies vaccination. Pay by the year or up to 3 years of the vaccination period via Pay Pal or a credit card through Pay Pal.
  • The current Yavapai County tag on your dog is a permanent tag which requires a yearly registration fee being paid (just like your car). Email notification will be sent after the due date.
  • Receive email notifications on rabies vaccinations and licenses.
  • You can appoint secondary people for co-guardianship which allows lost and found along with                                                                            licensing and rabies notification.
  • County wide Lost and Found web page – with one click of a button, you can label your dog lost and one click of a button to label the dog found. The Web site can be searched for lost dogs in your area.


Non-account holders can access limited portions of the site such, as the Lost and Found page and Calendar of Events.

If you have any questions about the site content, call the YCSO Animal Control Unit Sgt. Deb Dean at (928) 777-7285. For technical issues involving registration and account set-up, contact Ron Castle at (928) 777-7403.

For those without computer access, dog licenses may be purchased from Humane Societies, Sheriff’s offices, and low cost spay and neuter clinics and through the mail for new or renewal.
