Pet Licenses

All dogs and cats must be licensed and vaccinated against rabies. Licensing protects your pet! You will be reunited quickly if your dog strays from home and is rescued by shelter staff. All funds collected from dog licensing help defray the cost of the Animal Care and Control program. The cost for annual licenses for the City of Thousand Oaks are:

License Type: Dog Cat
Altered: $20 $7
Unaltered: $60 $7
Senior-owned Altered: $7

To apply for a new license, pay license fees, or for more information regarding fees, visit the Los Angeles County Animal Care & Control website at
