  • Pet licensing helps to track and manage the local dog and cat populations, both domestic and feral.
  • Licensing your pet gives the SPCA a way to contact you if your dog or cat ends up lost. Without licensing or some form of microchip, over 60% of pets never make it back to their loving homes.
  • A licensed pet also has a record of all of their shots and vaccinations. This be extremely important if your pet is ever attacked by another pet on the street. It tells the other pet’s owner that your dog doesn’t have rabies or any other communicable condition.
  • The money you pay to have your pet licensed doesn’t just disappear into the void. Instead, it pays for all of your Foster City SPCA services, including the ability to take in and care for stray or abandoned pets. Your pet-licensing dollars don’t just fund businesses, they save lives. They also go toward providing affordable spay and neuter clinics for low-wage individuals.
  • Pet licensing is simple, and can be done online, by phone, or in person.
  • In Foster City, licensing your pet is the law! All dogs must be licensed officially, and it’s strongly encouraged that you do the same with your cats.
