Door-to-Door Licensing (Canvassing)

In an overabundance of caution, canvassing is temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.  For online licensing options, please click here.

Door-to-Door Licensing (Canvassing) is responsible for ensuring that dogs over 4 months old are licensed and have received a Rabies vaccination.  This applies to dogs living in our jurisdiction.

OC Animal Care Representatives (Canvassers), provide a personal door-to-door service by:

  • Canvassing contract cities and the unincorporated areas of the County throughout the year.
  • Issuing dog licenses and updating licensing records.
  • Providing general information about the services provided by OC Animal Care.
  • Providing information to the public about the benefits of licensing their pets, state and local mandates, and how pet licensing is a form of identification that helps reunite pets with their families.
