Rabies Vaccinations and Dog Licensing
The owner of every dog over the age of four months is required by law to ensure that his or her pet is currently vaccinated against rabies (SDCC Section 62.610) and licensed (SDCC Section 62.620[a]).

You must purchase a license:

a) Within thirty (30) days after reaching the age of four (4) months.
b) Within thirty (30) days of acquiring the dog or
c) Within thirty (30) days after entering the jurisdiction of these ordinances.

Failure to obtain a license as listed above or to renew the license by the expiration date will result in a late fee.

Dog owners who fail to comply with rabies vaccination or licensing requirements are subject to costly penalties.

If you've recently moved to Escondido, Poway or San Marcos and your dog is currently licensed elsewhere, you may be able to transfer that license for a nominal fee for the duration of the rabies vaccine, if the vaccine used has been approved for use in the State of California.
The Animal Control Center at the Escondido Humane Society provides dog licensing services for residents within the incorporated cities of Escondido, Poway and San Marcos. As with all Animal Control fees, your license fees are set by and reimbursed to the city in which you reside. The Escondido Humane Society does not profit from your license fees.
