Payment for your license is due by the expiration of your current license. If you are licensing for the first time, you must purchase a license when the pet reaches 4 months of age, within 30 days of acquiring the dog or within 30 days of moving into the City of Torrance.

A late fee of $20 is charged if your pet's license has expired.
