Dog Licenses

Thank you for your interest in a City of Pittsburgh Dog License and protecting your dog!

Your dog's registration tag assists in finding your lost pet. We then help reunite you with your lost pet. Your dog must be registered with the city when taking it to an animal care facility that boards or provides dog daycare services.



The person who finds your dog simply call 412-255-2575 with your registration number (on your dog's tag).
