Pet Licensing

Licensing

It is mandatory to license all dogs in the County of Los Angeles, and in unincorporated areas and most incorporated cities, cats also need to be licensed, with a few exceptions. Before licensing your pet, you must ensure that they are 4 months old and vaccinated against rabies every year or every three years. Failing to vaccinate or license your dog or cat may result in fines or penalties. Moreover, the County of Los Angeles requires all dogs and cats to be spayed or neutered and microchipped. If you have spayed or neutered your pet, you may be eligible for reduced license fees.
