Dog Licenses

A dog license is required for all dogs over the age of six months, living within the city limits of Pendleton unless specifically exempt. It is the duty of each owner or keeper of a dog to obtain a license(s) for their dog(s). The initial licensing of a dog must be accomplished within fourteen days of the date of acquiring a dog by a City resident or moving a dog into the City. The Licenses must be renewed annually on or before the first day of each year.

To get a city dog license, your dog must be currently inoculated with a rabies vaccination. The vaccination needs to be updated every one or three years, depending on the type of vaccination given.
