California law requires that all dogs over the age of four (4) months be vaccinated against rabies and licensed. Securing a dog or cat license is essential to assisting animal control agencies if a pet becomes lost. Residents not in compliance will be subject to license fees, delinquency charges, and a $40 field enforcement fee (to offset the cost of the field services). In order to avoid penalties, be sure your pet is licensed. You can secure a new license by printing the application online at www.animalcare.lacounty.gov and mailing it to Department of Animal Care 12440 E. Imperial Hwy Suite 603 Norwalk CA 90650 or by visiting your local County animal care center. Residents may also renew online if their pet’s license is not delinquent at our website: www.animalcare.lacounty.gov. Information on licensing fees can also be found on the website.
The Department of Animal Care and Control offers low-cost vaccination/microchips clinics (microchips are now $15, which includes an AVID registration) and low-cost assistance (for individuals who qualify) for spay and neuter surgeries. Please visit www.animalcare.lacounty.gov or stop by your local County of Los Angeles animal care center (Baldwin Park Animal Care Center) for more information about these services.
As a reminder...SPAY AND NEUTER is MANDATORY for both Dogs and Cats.
