At Ellensburg Animal Control, we rescue pets in need and reconnect them with the families who love them. We also help pets who need a new home to find their forever families.

Own a cat or dog?

All people living in the City of Ellensburg who own a cat or dog that is over 5 months of age must obtain an animal license.

Owners must provide proof of current rabies vaccination for the animals when licensing.  Licenses are purchased at the Animal Shelter and must be made within 14 days of obtaining the dog or cat.

The license is good for one year.  There are a few exceptions: dog guide, guide dog in training, service animal, governmental police dogs; and veterinary clinics, research facilities or similar commercial or institutional entities.
