WHEN DOES MY TAG EXPIRE?
Licenses are valid from time of purchase from one to two years.
PLEASE NOTE THIS EXCEPTION: If your rabies expires, so does your license. The Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. assists dog owners with getting a reduced fee rabies vaccine for their furry companion by holding vaccination clinics on the shelter premises.

LICENSING YOUR PET IS MANDATORY BY LAW
In the state of California, every dog that is over the age of 4 months must be vaccinated against rabies and have a current license.
Many dog owners purchase I.D. tags for their animals and believe this is the only form of identification needed. While an I.D. tag is optional, it is required by city and state mandates that each dog (and cat in some cities) be issued and wear a valid license. The difference between an I.D. tag and a license is that an I.D. tag simply has the name of the animal, a contact phone number for the owner, and possibly the address. A license has the number of the local humane society or animal shelter where the dog is registered, and a numbered code. If someone finds your dog, they call the humane society and report the number. The humane society can look up the information in the computer and determine all important contact information for the owner including address, phone number and whether the dog has a current rabies vaccination. A license also proves your pet has been vaccinated for rabies and the ID does not. Failure to have a licensed dog on your property over the age of 4 months will result in additional fees.
Senior citizens may qualify for a discounted licensing fee. A senior citizen is a pet owner over 65 years of age (60 years in Diamond Bar). If you believe you qualify for a discounted fee, please inform a Customer Care Representative. If you are completing a license by mail, please attach a copy of your license. Note that an altered pet is a pet that has been spayed or neutered.
