Welcome to our online Rabies Registration Tag system! Here you will be able to make a first-time purchase of your pet’s Registration Tag, or renew your pet’s tag.
Purchasing a Broward County Rabies Registration Tag is one of the most important things you can do for your dog or cat. Not only does it help to give your pet a “voice” so they can be identified if they become lost, but it also entitles your pet to a “free ride home” if he becomes lost from home for the first time. The tag is so important to your pet, that it is required by County ordinance for ALL dogs and cats 4 months of age or older.
