Animal Licenses

California law requires that all dogs over the age of four (4) months be licensed as a rabies control measure.  Making sure your dog has its current license attached to its collar also is your best insurance of having your dog returned to you in case he or she becomes lost or gets out of your yard.  The dog license also lets us know if your pet is currently vaccinated against rabies.

Senior or Disabled citizen discount is available for individual seniors 60 years of age and older and for disable citizens.  You may be required to provide proof of senior or disabled status to obtain the discounted license fee.

License(s) are due and payable when:

  1. Dog(s) reach the age of 4 months,
  2. You have acquired a new dog, or
  3. You become a new resident in the Town/City/County.

Valid certificates from a licensed Veterinarian must be presented for rabies vaccinations and spayed/neutered dogs.
