Ventura County Animal Services Licensing

Why do pets need to be licensed?
Licensing is a way for Animal Services to ensure that your pet is vaccinated against the Rabies virus. A License Tag is also another form of identification which helps Animal Services reunite you with your lost pet. A name tag is not the same as a Pet License Tag.


Choose a 12, 24 or 36 Month License for your Dog or Cat:
PayLicenseHere                               Senior Citizens    Altered           Unaltered
                                (55 years +)     ("Fixed")        ("Not Fixed")
12 Month License         $10                $20                $100

36 Month License         $20                $55                $280

**PLEASE NOTE THAT SENIOR CITIZEN PRICING APPLIES TO THE AGE OF THE PRIMARY OWNER AND NOT THE AGE OF THE PET** When applying, please provide proof of your age for the Senior Citizen Discount. Senior Citizen licensing rates are ONLY eligible for those pets that are altered.

* Effective July 1, 2017, there will be a small additional processing fee for those paying online for their pet license.

                                ("Fixed")        ("Not Fixed")
12 Month License        $50                 $20

Note: Rabies vaccination should match the term of the license. For example, if your pet's rabies vaccination is good for another two years and you purchase a three year license, the license will only be good for two years, not three.

Altered = "Fixed" - Spayed or Neutered

Unaltered = "Not Fixed" - Not Spayed or Neutered

Ventura County Animal Services does not license pets for those who live in the cities of Santa Paula or Thousand Oaks. We also do not license those living in Oxnard unless the pet is a new adoption from Ventura County Animal Services.
