Notes from the GM

Leading the Way

Dog licenses are required in Los Angeles and for good reason. They show that a dog has been vaccinated for rabies. So, I am writing to ask you to take another important leadership role in our City that will help animals and people. Make sure you are setting a great example for your friends, family and neighbors by having your dog(s) licensed, sterilized and vaccinated against rabies.

Dogs in our City are required to be licensed and spayed or neutered, unless they meet certain exemptions, and to have a current rabies vaccination. We know that people who invest in their pets by following these simple laws take better care of their dogs, keep them in their yards or homes and enjoy them more.

Also, if your furry family member accidentally gets out and is wearing a City dog tag, our Animal Control Officers will be able to get your animal home to you quickly.

We’ve made licensing or renewing your license much easier. You can get your dog (or horse) license online by going to www.ladogtag.org.

Please help spread the word. The Department’s canvassers and officers will be out in the neighborhoods knocking on doors and asking if the resident’s dog(s) are licensed. Help your friends and family avoid unnecessary fines and remind them to license their best canine buddy today!
