Animal Control will be conducting field licensing enforcement for the unincorporated areas in zip codes 93510 and 91390, starting on Wednesday, May 7.
California State law requires all dogs and cats more than 4 months old to be vaccinated against rabies and licensed.
Animal Control officials encourage pet owners to comply with the law and the county’s mandatory spay/neuter and microchip ordinance, if they live in unincorporated areas or in a city that has adopted the county’s ordinance.
Field enforcement is designed to ensure that these pet owners are in compliance.
Those who have not licensed their pet, or whose pet license is out of date will face license fees and delinquency charges, including a $40 field enforcement fee to offset the cost of Animal Control field services.
Do avoid the extra fees, residents can register or renew pet licenses online or at any county animal care center.
Animal Control also offers low-cost vaccination and microchips clinics and low-cost assistance for spay and neuter surgeries. Assistance is available for those who qualify.
