Animal Licensing

A properly licensed pet assures that the rabies vaccination is current. Because the rabies virus is present in Monterey County, current rabies vaccinations are mandatory for dogs and cats over 4 months old. Licenses are mandatory for dogs and voluntary for cats.

In addition to being required by law, other benefits that come with having a licensed pet include a reliable form of identification if your pet becomes lost and less chance of your pet ending up at an animal shelter.
