The City of Federal Way released a new online animal licensing program for residents Aug. 4.
Federal Way residents can renew or create their pet’s license in three steps at www.cityoffederalway.com/page/animal-licensing.
Licenses are free and permanent for residents who are over the age of 65 or who are disabled.
All cats and dogs over 5 months old must be licensed with Federal Way. Licensing also requires a rabies vaccination.
The new online program only accepts credit cards but pet-owners can also find mail-in applications at the Federal Way Police Department, the local pet store or the local veterinarian. Those who live outside city limits have to use the King County Animal Services page instead at kingcounty.gov/depts/regional-animal-services.
