License, Vaccinate and Microchip Your Dog
Dog owners and their dogs are encouraged to come to Santa Barbara County Animal Services'
Project PetSafe Licensing Clinic for Dogs on Saturday, May 18, 2013, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., at
Valley Pets' 3rd Annual Animal Festival, 225 McMurray Road in Buellton.
The County of Santa Barbara enforces a zero tolerance policy on all unlicensed dogs. The fine
for having an unlicensed dog is $290. State and local laws require all dogs over 4 months to be
licensed and wearing the animal license tag. Dog owners are responsible for keeping their
dog's license current.
The Buellton Licensing Clinic provides:
New dog licenses and renewals
A current rabies certificate and written proof that the dog is spayed or neutered
are required to obtain an altered dog license. A current rabies certificate and a
Veterinary Certificate signed by a licensed veterinarian are required to obtain an
unaltered dog license.
Microchipping - $30 for licensed dogs
Information about affordable spay and neuter services.
All dogs must be on leash. No appointment needed.
Cash (no bills over $50) and checks accepted. No credit cards/debit cards.
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.
