The City of Richland is currently in the process of reviewing animal licensing fees for 2019. During this review, no new or renewal licenses will be issued. If you currently have a 2018 tag, please continue to use that tag until further notice.
The City will be evaluating the purpose of animal licensing, effectiveness of licensing for returning an animal to an owner, and administrative costs versus the benefits of licensing. Other information may come to light during our review that may help us form a recommendation for the future. We will send you an update when our review is complete, and expect to be done no later than June 2019.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at AnimalLicensing@ci.richland.wa.us.
