Sparky already has his dog license!
“Santa Ana Animal Services will waive late fees for dog licenses during a temporary amnesty program through May 15. The city charges $24 annually to license a spayed or neutered dog, $100 for an unfixed dog; late fees are $41,” according to the O.C. Register.
I emailed Santa Ana Police Chief on March 1, to inform him about the Orange County dog license amnesty, which we reported about this week.
I have also asked the Chief to consider permanent lower dog license fees. We wrote about that subject here in February, at this link. What I would like to see in particular is discounts for households with more than one dog; lower late fees; and lower fees for unfixed dogs. Currently we charge more for dog licenses than the City of Irvine does! Continue reading→

OC Animal Care Offers Pet Owners Amnesty for Delinquent or Unlicensed Dogs
(Orange, – CA) On March 2nd, the Orange County Board of Supervisors approved a Dog License Amnesty program. From April 1st – May 15th, dog owners will be able to renew their expired licenses, or obtain new licenses, with no worry of late fees or extra charges. This program will be offered to dog owners living in the 17 cities and unincorporated areas served by OC Animal Care. Not only will this program help relieve some of the burden on pocketbooks; it will also help more animals find their way back home if they are lost. By placing a license tag on their dog, owners will help OC Animal Care get in touch with them if their pet is brought into the shelter.
“OC Animal Care wants to be sensitive to dog owners experiencing financial hardship,” said Ryan Drabek, Interim Director for OC Animal Care. He added, “It is our goal, through this program, to ensure more pets are returned to their owners when the unfortunate happens. Approximately 97% of the animals impounded by OC Animal Care that are wearing a tag are returned to their owners. We believe that licensing is a great benefit for our pet owners in Orange County.” Continue reading→
