In an effort to support the public during these challenging times, Contra Costa County is currently suspending late fees for licensing. The suspension of late fees will in no manner waive the County's license requirements, mandates, or regulations. The County's late fees for licensing will be reinstated 60 days after the County's Health Order is lifted by Contra Costa County's Health Services Department.

For more information on shelter operations during the shelter-in-place mandate, please visit the Contra Costa Animal Services website.
