License Renewal Reminders

The City of Bellevue has an automatic calling system to remind pet license holders to renew. Around the third week of each month, calls go out with a recorded message, including information on where licenses may be renewed. 

How to Purchase or Renew Your License for your Pet:

You can buy a license online via Regional Animal Services of King County. Or visit one of the following Bellevue walk-in locations:
  • City Hall, 450 110th Avenue NE;
  • Mini-City Hall, 15600 NE 8th St.;
  • Aerowood Animal Hospital, 2975 156th Avenue SE; and
  • All QFCs.

Regional Animal Services of King County provides animal control, animal shelter and pet licensing services to Bellevue, along with many neighboring cities and unincorporated King County.

Besides being the law, a King County pet license includes many benefits including:

  • The first time your pet is found, King County will attempt to skip the shelter and bring your pet home
  • Licensed pets have a longer stray hold at the shelter
  • The Vacation Pet Alert program allows you to provide contact information for your pets Care while you are away from home
  • Pet license fees help thousands of homeless animals in King County find new families each year and pay for services such as spay/neuter programs
