Do I have to register a pet in Portland?
Both dogs and cats are the required to be registered in Portland. Veterinarians in Portland can issue a city tag at the same time the required Rabies vaccination tag is issued. You can also register a dog or cat at the Portland Police Department, 1902 Billy G. Webb Dr. (361) 777-4444 by presenting current Rabies vaccination records. Whether your veterinarian issues the city tag, or you obtain it directly from the City, the cost for registering your pet is $5.00 per year.
