Animal Licensing

Dog licensing is mandated by the State of California Health and Human Services Department.The Licensing is required to ensure all dogs have been properly vaccinated against rabies. All counties within the State of California have been declared "rabies areas" since 2007. This is based on the ongoing cycles of rabies in California's wildlife, and the resulting threat of exposure to domestic animals, livestock, and humans. Learn more about rabies.
