Welcome to the Lake Havasu City Police Department's Online Dog Licensing System.
This system allows you to purchase or renew your dog’s license.
You may pay for your dog license(s) online by using your MasterCard, Visa or Discover Credit Cards. There is a 3% convenience fee ($1 minimum) added to allow for this online service. Please be assured that every precaution has been taken to ensure that your online transactions are safe and secure.
Please keep in mind that you will need to upload a scanned copy of your dog’s current rabies vaccination certificate to complete the transaction.
