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.

    Heritage Junction is getting spiffed up a little. I’ve got this habit of opening up the train gate so kids can ring the bell on the big engine. I love that. So do the kids. Not sure the parents like it, but I am a grandfather. I could give the kids something full of sugar and maybe a kitten before they head home. Now that would be fun.
