*A license cannot be valid for a longer period than the current rabies vaccination.

A veterinarian certificate of counseling is required in order to license an unaltered pet.

The cost for licensing unaltered or fertile pets is higher than that for licensing spayed or neutered pets in order to promote sterilization and to reduce pet overpopulation and starvation.

Due Date

Payment for your license is due within 30 days of the date that your current license expires. If you are licensing for the first time, you must purchase a license within 30 days of obtaining a dog or unaltered cat over the age of 4 months or within 30 days of establishing residence in the City of Santa Barbara.

A late fee of $28.00 is added if your license has not been renewed within 30 days of the expiration of your prior license.
