Dog Licenses

The Auditor's office loves dogs! We also license them. For your pet's safety and your own peace of mind—-in addition, of course, to complying with the law—we encourage all San Juan County residents to license their dogs.
Here's how and where to do so.

Hours of Operation
10:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday
San Juan County Courthouse, First Floor
Licensing Locations

Bandit, the Auditor's dog


All dogs in San Juan County and the Town of Friday Harbor are required to be licensed yearly. The license application must include the gender, breed, name and owner of the dog. Please notify the Auditor's office if you no longer have a dog, so the dog license records can be updated before the annual renewal date. The licensing period is from January 1 to December 31 of each year, with no proration.

Cats are not required to be licensed.
