The Fast and Easy Solution for Orange County, CA Pet Licensing

Did you know that Now, do you know how to get an Orange County pet license?

Let's take a look at getting your pet licensed in Orange County on your own,

The Pet Licensing Process With OC Animal Care

When attempting to get your pet licensed through OC (Orange County) Animal Care, you must first determine your city's particular zoning requirements regarding your pet. If you are not sure, you can check out the Animal Permits page on the OC Animal Care website.

On the OC Animal Care website, you'll find a chart describing the locations within Orange County that require a pet to be licensed. If your city is on the chart of cities covered by OC Animal Care you then have these three options.

  1. Pet Licensing in person at your local OC Animal Care office
  2. Pet Licensing by mail to your local OC Animal Care office
  3. Pet Licensing online applications, that you can print, fill out, and then use either above option to complete the pet license process on your end

Unincorporated areas of the county require that you go to that area's local animal shelter for licensing and licensing issues. Those unincorporated areas do not have an online option for pet licensing applications.

Pet License Timeline in Orange County

If your Orange County dog is over four months old, it will need to be licensed with the proper OC Animal Care office. This same pet must also be vaccinated from rabies, and you cannot license the dog until you get this vaccination.

When you adopt a dog from a local shelter, you have 15 days from the date of acquisition to get the dog licensed. Failure to do so will result in noncompliance and that will carry with it additional fees and possibly warrants for the owner if licensing requirements are not met.

There is a much better way that does not involve incarceration!
