Every person who keeps a dog older than four months for more than thirty days in the City will need to obtain a dog license. A dog license can be purchased for a minimum of six months to a maximum of two years. A dog cannot be licensed longer than the remaining term of the dog’s rabies vaccination. To obtain a license, dog owners must furnish the following information: the owner’s name, address and telephone number, the breed, approximate age, color and sex of the animal, and a current rabies vaccination certificate. The license fee is reduced for spayed or neutered dogs. If an animal has been spayed or neutered, proof from a veterinarian is required.
A dog license application can be obtained online at http://petdata.com/cs/npb or from Customer Service/Cashier at the Civic Center in Bay A. The Civic Center is located at 100 Civic Center Drive. If you do not have internet access a dog license application can be mailed at your request. Please contact the Revenue Division at 949-644-3141 to have an application mailed to you. Dog licenses are not processed or issued at city hall. License tags will be mailed to you from Pet Data, our dog license service provider. Once payment is received, a dog license tag will be issued and must be worn by the dog when in public.
