Did you know every dog and cat in the City of Lancaster is required to be licensed by the Department of Animal Care and Control?

Dog and cat licenses are an important means of identification and help to reunite lost pets with their owners.The City of Lancaster also requires pet owners to have their dogs and cats spayed or neutered as well as microchipped. Compliance with these regulations will also reduce license fees.

Please call (661) 940-4191 or visit animalcare.lacounty.gov to purchase your pet license today!
