Assistance Animal Identification Tags
What is this service?
Animal Services issues Assistance Animal Identification Tags for animals which meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) definition of an assistance animal. To qualify for the issuance of a tag, an animal must be individually trained to perform a specific task or specific work function for a person with a disability.
For dogs that qualify, this tag also serves as their license tag. Animals that do not meet the definition of an assistance animal may still qualify as therapy animals and be entitled to certain accommodations. However, there is no specific tag or identification issued for these animals.
Who can use this service?
Assistance Animal Identification Tags are available to any disabled County resident using a qualified assistance animal to aid in the accommodation or mitigation of their disability.
Is there a charge for this service?
This service is provided free of charge.
