LA county warning-Here come the pet police
So much for the lie of "complaint-driven" enforcement.
County animal control officers are sweeping through parts of the San Gabriel Valley, checking to see that pets have been spayed or neutered and have current rabies vaccinations and licenses, according to the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control. Officers will work the unincorporated areas near Pasadena, San Gabriel, Monrovia, and Arcadia to make sure residents are in compliance with pet licensing and rabies requirements as well as the mandatory spay/neuter and microchip ordinance. State law requires that all dogs and cats over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies and be licensed.
Residents not in compliance face license fees and delinquency charges, including a $40 field enforcement fee. For more information, including contact information for low-cost options for vaccinations and spay-and-neuter surgeries, visit http://animalcare.lacounty.gov.
