Dog Licenses in Venice Beach


If you didn’t know, dogs and horses (any equine) are required to be licensed in the City of Los Angeles. Cats are not required to be licensed. As of October I, 2008 all cats and dogs in the City of Los Angeles are required by law to be spayed or neutered unless they meet certain exceptions. If your animal has been spayed or neutered then you can renew your pet license online.


License tags identify owners of lost animals. Each license tag has a unique number assigned to your animal alone. People who find an animal with a tag need only call the telephone number printed on the tag for quick owner identification and reunion with the lost animal. If a licensed animal is lost or taken to a shelter, LA Department of Animal Services can identify the owner by the tag number and contact the registered animal owner. Animals with licensing information are held in the shelters while the owners are contacted.

There is a $15 fee for Dogs. If you are a senior (62+ years of age) there is no fee.
