Any animal that is kept as a house pet, including those kept as farm animals, must be exempt from paying state and federal taxes. However, pet sitters must still have a valid license and current registration.
How do I renew my license?
Any registered Texas pet sitter who has a valid license can renew it online through Pet Sitter Texas. Click here to download the registration form from the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation website.
For information about renewing your existing license please contact a Pet Sitter in your area.
Where can I obtain a license for a dog?
Your pet sitter will tell you where to find and purchase licenses for your dog. Your pet sitter must:
Have a valid license for your dog
Have a current license from the state in Texas, such as a pet sitter license for dogs or a spay/neuter registration with the Texas Department of Health Services for cats
Have an active license from the U.S. government for dogs, cats, or both – in effect for the last 6 months before the licensing date.
For information on applying for an active Texas spaying/neutering license, call the Texas Department of Agriculture at (512) 486-3760 or go to their Web site for a full set of registration forms.
