Animal Licensing

Per Chapter 6.08 of the Bainbridge Island Municipal Code, dog owners must obtain a license (cat licensing is optional). There is a nominal one-time fee if your animal is spayed or neutered per the City's Fee Schedule.  If your animal is NOT spayed or neutered, the fee is $25 per year, every year for the life of the animal.

If you need an animal license, stop by the police station or complete this fillable form and send it with a check payable to CoBI to the police department using the address at right.

Among other locations in the county, animal licenses can also be obtained at the Day Road Animal Hospital, and the Humane Society in Silverdale.
