The widespread economic downturn brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, has left many pet owners whom have put off paying for their required annual pet licenses and incurred late fees. Beginning April 15, 2021, the City of La Habra Heights, in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control (DACC), is waiving late fees for residents renewing or buying a new license for their dog or cat through June 30, 2021. In addition to the late fee amnesty, DACC is happy to offer a free microchip (usually a cost of $7.50) for all pets licensed during this time. Microchipping is mandated in the City of La Habra Heights and greatly increases the likelihood that your pet will be returned to you if lost. The free microchip offer is redeemable by appointment at any of the County’s seven animal care centers+.
If you are not certain if your pet’s license is current or not, you may access your pet’s record on the DACC website at https://animalcare.lacounty.gov/ or call (562) 345-0400 to inquire.
The City of La Habra Heights and DACC care about you and your pet’s wellbeing and thank you for keeping your pet’s license and rabies vaccination current.
