Dog Licensing

The State of California requires that all dogs over the age of 4 months must have a current rabies vaccination and license. Rabies is a serious and deadly disease and San Joaquin County is considered a rabies endemic area. In other words, there has been at least one confirmed case of rabies in the County. For this reason, rabies vaccines are required and the method to track this is through dog licensing. Your pet must have a current rabies vaccination certificate from a veterinarian in order to purchase a license.
