City Of Burien Offering Pet Licenses At Reduced Rates
The City of Burien announced Thursday (Dec. 30th) that local pet owners can obtain licenses for their dogs and cats at reduced rates after Dec. 31st.
Licenses for altered pets are $10; unaltered pets, $25, and licenses are good through June 30, 2011.
“The city requires the purchase each year of a pet license for all dogs and cats 6-months of age or older,” according to a statement. “The fee is based on whether the pet is altered or not. Full-year licenses are $20 for altered pets; $50, unaltered pets and are issued on July 1, good through June 30.”
Residents 65 years of age and older may obtain a special permanent license for the lifetime of their altered pet for a one-time charge of $15. Proof of spay/neuter must be submitted.
Current pet licenses issued by King County Animal Control are valid in the City through June 30, 2011. County licenses can be exchanged for City of Burien licenses at no charge. Lifetime licenses issued by King County will be honored. Pet owners of altered animals must bring documentation of the surgery in order to get the lower rate.
