NewsCity of Yucaipa Canvassing Program Begins April 19, 2017
San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control will conduct a door-to-door canvass of neighborhoods in Yucaipa to ensure that all dogs have current licenses and rabies vaccinations. The program will start April 19 and end June 3.
“The goal is to increase awareness on the benefits of responsible pet ownership, educate residents regarding the benefits of pet licensure, and to ensure compliance with current Yucaipa Municipal Codes in regards to pet ownership,” said Brian Cronin, Division Chief for San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control.
All dogs within Yucaipa are required by law to be licensed and vaccinated at four months of age. A license also identifies the owner and allows them to be quickly reunited with their pet in case they ever get lost. In addition, all pit bull and pit bull-type dogs are required to be spayed or neutered.
Pet owners can prepare by having current pet licenses, vaccination records, and spay/neuter certificates available to avoid possible citations. Owners of unlicensed dogs may obtain a license before visits from animal license checkers.
Licenses may be purchased or renewed online at www.sbcounty.gov/acc or at the following locations:
- Yucaipa City Hall, 34272 Yucaipa Blvd., Yucaipa – Monday-Thursday, 7:30 am – 5:30 pm and alternating Friday’s 8 am – 5 pm
- Yucaipa Animal Placement Society (YAPS), 11937 13th Street, Yucaipa – Tuesday-Saturday, 10am – 4pm
A dog license costs $24 for an altered dog, $12 for disabled residents or seniors (65 years and older) with an altered dog, and $96 for an unaltered dog. An additional $20 late fee applies if the license application is determined to be late.
