The City of Garden Grove reminds all responsible pet owners to license their pets through OC Animal Care.

Obtaining a pet license not only establishes ownership of an animal, it increases the chances that lost pets will be reunited with their owners, as well as protect pets, families and neighbors from coming in contact with rabies. 

The City of Garden Grove reminds all responsible pet owners to license their pets through OC Animal Care.

Obtaining a pet license not only establishes ownership of an animal, it increases the chances that lost pets will be reunited with their owners, as well as protect pets, families and neighbors from coming in contact with rabies. 

OC Animal Care, under contract with the City of Garden Grove, provides licensing and other animal services for all residents. All dogs in Orange County over 4 months of age are required by law to be licensed and vaccinated against rabies. Residents owning or having custody of any dog must license the dog within 15 days of acquisition or within 15 days after the license becomes due.

Residents must provide proof of a California-approved rabies vaccination to obtain a license (OCCO 4-1-70). Cat licensing is optional and available through OC Animal Care.

Licensed pets that are lost and taken to the OC Animal Care shelter can be retrieved by their owners for free on the first day of impound. The shelter will call and send the owner a letter, and give licensed pet owners a longer period of time to claim their pet.

Prices for pet licensing vary, based on sterilized vs. non-sterilized animals.  Senior citizen owner discounts are also available.  Licenses may be obtained online at www.ocpetinfo.com. For more information, call 714-935-6848.
