Pet Licensing

If you are a City of Fremont resident, your dog or cat is required to be licensed within 30 days of: 

  • Acquiring a cat or dog that is over 4 months old.
  • A cat or dog turning 4 months old.
  • Moving to Fremont with a cat or dog.
  • The expiration of a pet license.

For residents of Newark, Union City, and San Leandro, please check with your City’s directory for licensing services.


When a pet has either not been licensed after initial notification or license expires and license has been delinquent approximately ninety (90) days, the first citation will be issued for the violation.
