Animal Tags

All domestic dogs, cats, and ferrets living in Port Orange must be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian and have a current Port Orange license tag.

If you need additional information regarding rabies vaccination, please check with your veterinarian.

The animal license tag proves the animal has its current vaccinations and enables Port Orange Animal Control to return the animal to its rightful owner, should it get lost or is found at large.

Port Orange’s ordinance for animals requires all owned animals to be under physical restraint or verbal command when outside. 

In order to eliminate the unintended or uncontrolled breeding of dogs and cats within the city, it is also mandatory for all dogs and cats owned by Port Orange residents to be spayed/neutered (sterilized).  Exceptions to this requirement can be found in the section dedicated to the spay/neuter ordinance.  If seeking a tag for an unsterilized animal, please see the section on Applying for an Unaltered Animal Permit.
