The Tri-City Animal Shelter, located at 1950 Stevenson Boulevard, will soon begin implementing more consistent hours for Fremont residents to license their pets in person. Effective January 7, 2020, the new licensing hours will align with the shelter’s hours, making licensing available in person at the shelter’s front counter during the following times:
- Tuesday–Friday: 12 p.m. – 5 p.m.
- Saturday: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
- Closed Sundays, Mondays, and Holidays
You can also license a new pet, renew an existing pet’s license, and update information for you and your pet online.
If you are a City of Fremont resident, your dog or cat is required to be licensed at 4 months of age or within 30 days of ownership or bringing the animal into the city. California state law requires the rabies vaccination to be effective during the entire licensing period.
The Tri-City Animal Shelter is Fremont’s only open admissions shelter. The shelter accepts all stray, abandoned, or homeless pets residing in Fremont, Union City, Newark, and San Leandro regardless of age, breed, temperament, or medical condition. Fremont Animal Services provides public safety, licensing, and animal welfare in the community, while the shelter reunites pets with their owners, facilitates adoptions, networks animals to adoption partners, and provides owner education.
