(Victor Valley)– San Bernardino County’s Animal Care and Control (ACC) is announcing the new licensing fee schedule for the next fiscal year that begins Wednesday, July 1, 2020. These fees apply to residents of all unincorporated county areas and the cities of Highland, Yucaipa and Big Bear Lake.
Dog licensing fees have increased, though discounts still exist for dogs that are altered (spayed or neutered) and for senior citizens and disabled citizens with altered dogs. Proof of spay/neuter certificate, senior citizen status, and disability are required to receive discounts. Additionally, there are discounts for purchasing a multi-year license.
The last time that fees were raised was in 2016.
ACC recommends all dogs be spayed or neutered to receive discounted licenses and to help control the homeless animal population. Spaying/Neutering is mandatory in the unincorporated county areas and in the cities of Highland and Yucaipa for pit bull and pit bull-type dogs. Financial assistance for spaying and neutering dogs and cats may be available by calling the Pet Over-Population Coalition (POPCO) at (888) 767-2550 for more information or visit www.popco-inc.org.
For licensing information, residents can call ACC at (800) 472-5609 or visit http://wp.sbcounty.gov/dph/programs/acc/licensing/licensing for online licensing.
