The City of Rohnert Park requires that all dogs, cats and pot-bellied pigs be licensed. For your convenience, we have three locations that you may obtain a license for your animal:
City Hall - Finance Department130 Avram Avenue
City of Rohnert Park Animal Shelter301 J. Rogers Lane
49er Pet Store375 Southwest Boulevard.
If your animal gets lost, call the Animal Shelter at (707) 584-1582 to see if your animal was turned in. If your animal is wearing the tag, the Shelter will be able to identify your name and address by the license number on the tag and will contact you.
When To Register Your Animal
Puppies and Kittens
When your puppy or kitten receives his or her first year rabies shot ( 4 months ) bring the proof of rabies to the Finance Department at City Hall, 130 Avram Avenue to register your pet.
If you intend to have the animal spayed or neutered within 90 days of the first full year's shot, wait until you have completed the surgical procedure and bring both the neuter and rabies certificates to the above office for registration.
Animal Licensing Fee Schedule
$12.00 per year for cats, dogs, and pot-bellied pigs that have been spayed or neutered. $30.00 per year for cats, dogs, and pot-bellied pigs that have not been altered. Your license is issued for one year from the month of your pet's rabies vaccination. You will be sent a renewal notice the month before your license expires and the license will be due by the date of expiration. There will be a penalty of $15 assessed for all late payments.
You will be given a life-time animal tag. If your animal loses the tag, there will be a $5 charge for a new tag. If your animal gets out and is turned into the Animal Shelter, the Shelter will be able to access all your information by the tag number and will notify you that they have your animal.

If you have an existing animal license and your animal gets spayed or neutered, please send us a copy of proof of spay/neuter to our office. Our mailing address is: City of Rohnert Park, P.O.
