The Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA (IVHS) will be conducting neighborhood canvassing for dog licenses in the City of Chino Hills beginning Tuesday, May 30. In the state of California, every dog over the age of four months must be vaccinated against rabies and have a current license. The City of Chino Hills contracts with IVHS to provide animal control services.
In addition to ensuring pets are protected and free from rabies, licensing also helps in the return of lost or stray dogs to their owners and helps make the community a safer place for all pets. IVHS employees will be driving their personal vehicles and will carry a badge. Their uniform consists of black pants, a black polo shirt with the IVHS logo, and a black hat with the IVHS logo.
Chino Hills residents are encouraged to license their dogs ahead of time and maintain current dog licenses. The annual cost for a dog license in Chino Hills is $30 if the dog is spayed or neutered, and $100 if not. Senior citizens, age 65 or older with proof of age, and active Military members and Veterans are eligible for a reduced license fee of $10 for spayed or neutered dogs. Owners who have not renewed their dog’s license or who have unlicensed dogs are subject to a penalty equivalent to the license fee.
There are many convenient ways for residents to pay their dog licensing fee. Residents can pay or renew by mail, by phone by calling (909) 623-9777, or online at www.ivhsspca.org by selecting “license” on the homepage and scrolling down to find the “license your pet online section.” For more information on pet licensing in Chino Hills, visit www.chinohills.org/AnimalControl.
