Dog Licenses

If you live in Humboldt County, outside of city limits, you must license your dog at the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office.

Licenses are good from January 1st through December 31st. A late penalty will be added for all renewals after January 31st. Altered dogs are $4.00 per year and unaltered dogs are $10.00 per year. When renewing, bring current proof of rabies vaccination (if expired). You will receive a reminder notice in the mail in December of each year.

Liquor Licenses

If you own a business in the County that requires a Liquor License to sell alcohol, you will need to apply for a Liquor License.

Please print and fill out the form, in its entirety, and bring to the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. You will also need to go to the County Clerk’s Office and apply for a Business License, if you don’t already have one. 

All ongoing liquor-selling establishments will be subject to a background investigation, fingerprinting and a fee. If approved, you will be billed on a quarterly basis for your Liquor License.
