laanimalcare_dacc_animalcontrolOfficers from the Department of Animal Care and Control will be in the unincorporated area of Castaic beginning July 31, checking for current rabies vaccinations, ensuring residents are in compliance with licensing requirements as well as the mandatory spay/neuter and microchip ordinance. California State law requires that all dogs and cats over the age of four months be vaccinated against rabies and be licensed. Securing a dog or cat license is an important part of identification and can assist animal control agencies if your pet becomes lost.

Pet owners are advised to be in compliance with licensing and the mandatory spay/neuter and microchip ordinance if they reside in any unincorporated area of Los Angeles County (or contract city that has adopted the County’s ordinance). Residents not in compliance will be subject to license fees and delinquency charges, including a $40 field enforcement fee, to offset the cost of the Department’s field services. In order to avoid penalties, be sure to license your pet. You can secure a new animal license by printing the application online at animalcare.lacounty.gov, or visiting your local County animal care center. If your license is not delinquent, you can also renew it through the Internet.

DACC offers low cost vaccination/microchips clinics (microchips are now $15, which includes AVID registration) and low cost assistance (for individuals who qualify) for spay and neuter surgeries. Please visit our website animalcare.lacounty.gov or stop by your local County animal care center for more information about these services.

    The progressive left is either low-IQ or low-information. They throw around the word “racist” for anyone who doesn’t agree with them. But that’s not what the word means.

    I really have to laugh to myself when I hear someone complain about the lack of stores in the mall. Got news for them. We used to have to go to San Fernando to get school clothes. In the mid-1960s we went to the Topanga Plaza mall and shopped at the Broadway or May Co. We didn’t have a mall. We had some carrot fields near where the mall is today.
