License, Vaccinate and Microchip Your Dog at the Buellton Licensing Clinic


Dog owners and their dogs are encouraged to come to Santa Barbara County Animal Services’ Project PetSafe Licensing Clinic on Saturday, May 21, 2011, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Valley Pets Grand Opening, 225 McMurray Road in Buellton.

Did you know dog licenses are required by law? Did you know that a rabies tag is not a dog license? Many dog owners do not realize that state and local laws require all dogs over 4 months to be licensed and wearing the animal license tag.

The Buellton Licensing Clinic provides:

• New dog licenses and renewals – all late fees will be waived

A current rabies certificate and written proof that the dog is spayed or neutered (if applicable) are required to obtain a dog license.

• Affordable vaccinations

Rabies $6

DHPP $11

Bordatella $11

• Microchipping - $20 for licensed dogs

• Information about affordable spay and neuter services

• All dogs must be on leash

• No appointments needed

• Cash (no bills over $50) and checks accepted

County Animal Services can quickly reunite a lost dog with its family when the dog is wearing a license. A dog license also makes a difference to the less fortunate animals in our community. Revenue from the sale of dog licenses helps Santa Barbara County Animal Services operate three open door shelters. A dog license proves that you are a responsible pet owner and helps the animals at the shelters find loving homes. Show you care. License your dog. It’s the law.
