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

Due Date

Payment for your license is due upon expiration of your current license. If you are licensing for the first time, you must purchase a license within 15 days of obtaining a pet over the age of 4 months or within 15 days of moving into Santa Ana.

A penalty fee is added to the license fee if your license is not purchased or renewed by the due date. The penalty fee is $48 and accumulates annually. To avoid the assessment of a $48 penalty fee, please remit the payment and/or rabies certificate, if required, by the due date. A penalty fee may be assessed for the following reasons: late payment, revaccination of the dog after the rabies expiration date, or failure to provide the rabies vaccination certificate.
