How to Apply for a Yorba Linda Pet License in Person

To apply for a pet license in Yorba Linda by yourself, you'll need to visit the office at 1630 Victory Road, which is actually in Tustin. The challenge for most folks is that the licensing office is only open on Mondays, 8 am to 5 pm, and Wednesdays, 8 am to 7 pm.

So if you work during regular hours or commute within Orange County, it can be a struggle to get there on time. Once you arrive, plan on waiting in line for a little while. The county has a pretty good reputation for customer service, but there is usually a small line since the hours are limited. Remember to bring all your paperwork (a rabies certificate is essential.)

You Can Apply by Mail for a Yorba Linda Pet License

To apply by mail for your Yorba Linda pet license:

  1. Print this application.
  2. Fill it out, and enclose copies of your rabies certificate and proof of sterilization from your vet.
  3. Enclose the correct fee: $28 for a sterilized dog, $159 for an intact dog, cats are $9.
  4. You may also need to pay late fees -- $58 -- if your pet license is past due. And if an animal control officer was out to your home for unlicensed animals, there would be another $112 non-compliance fee.

The point we're making is that you should get your pet licenses on time every year to save those fees.

Once that's done, put it all in the mail to:

OC Animal Care, Licensing Department

1630 Victory Road

Tustin, CA 92782

Then play the waiting game. Hopefully, the postal service doesn't lose your mail. You'll receive your pet licenses within a few weeks. The DoNotPay App is the faster and easier way to apply for pet licenses in Yorba Linda! And you mustn't let those licenses lapse, or you'll be on the hook to pay expensive fees and fines.

Yorba Linda has Rules About Pet Ownership.

Now, let's learn more about pet licensing.

Orange County ordinances say that locals can only own three pets, whether they 're cats or dogs. If you are a professional breeder or trainer or keep four or more dogs or cats, you'll need special animal permits. All pets need to be vaccinated against rabies, and sterilized animals are more affordable for yearly licensing. That's because California has animal control problems: feral cats and stray dogs.
