Online Dog Licensing Now Available

On behalf of WAIF, I am pleased to announce that WAIF now offers an online licensing option for dogs on Whidbey Island to Island County residents outside the city limits of Oak Harbor, Coupeville, and Langley. WAIF has partnered with Pawzii, our online service provider, to deliver this additional service to Island County pet owners on Whidbey Island for their convenience. In-person license renewals will remain available through WAIF, along with most area veterinarians, and at county offices.

For altered dogs, the license cost is $10. For unaltered dogs, the cost is $33. In addition to the license cost, a nominal administrative fee of $4 is added for the convenience of ordering dog licenses online through Pawzii, with USPS mail delivery provided by WAIF. 100% of the license fee will continue to go to the county to help subsidize animal control services.

If you’re a county resident outside the city limits of Oak Harbor, Coupeville, and Langley and own a dog, it is required that owners have current license tags for their dogs as licenses expire at the end of the year in which they were purchased. This additional avenue of getting your dog licensed makes it easy and convenient for island residents to get into compliance. Save time, save gas, and renew online! Please know that licensing, tagging, and/or microchipping your pet increases the chances that it will be located if it ever becomes lost, and is encouraged by WAIF.
