According to a release from the city of Port Orange, with 2020 animal tags will expire on December 31, 2020, Police Officers and Animal Control Officers will not issue citations for expired tags until sixty days after the 2021 animal tags become available for purchase. 


The city is currently working on when the 2021 tags will be made available.


Port Orange Police Department and the City’s social media pages will be updated with information through January and February 2021, on when the tags will be available for purchase. 


Residents can call Customer Service at 386-506-5720 regarding tags for sterilized animals, or the Police Dept. Records Section at 386-506-5801 regarding tags for unsterilized animals, to check for the availability of the specific animal tag needed. 


All domestic dogs, cats, and ferrets living in Port Orange must be vaccinated against rabies by a licensed veterinarian and have a current Port Orange license tag. The animal license tag proves the animal has its current vaccinations and enables Port Orange Animal Control to return the animal to its rightful owner, should it get lost or is found at large. If you need additional information regarding rabies vaccination, please check with your veterinarian.


To eliminate the unintended or uncontrolled breeding of dogs and cats within the city, it is also mandatory for all dogs and cats owned by Port Orange residents to be spayed or neutered. 


Exceptions to this requirement can be found in the section dedicated to the spay/neuter ordinance at If seeking a tag for an unsterilized animal, please see the section on our website under Applying for an Unaltered Animal Permit
