DOG LICENSING UPDATE: DOOR-TO-DOOR CANVASS BEGINS SEPT. 3, 2013
PASADENA, Calif.—Officials for the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA (PHS) will begin door-to-door canvassing for proper dog licensing starting Tuesday, September 3, 2013 within in the City of Pasadena as part of the joint efforts between PHS and the City to improve animal services.
Licensing officials for the Pasadena Humane Society will be knocking on doors Tuesdays through Fridays, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., beginning Sept. 3. They will start in the Hastings Ranch area of East Pasadena to verify that dog owners have properly licensed and vaccinated their dogs per state law. PHS officials will canvass other neighborhoods as soon as possible, going across town from east to west.
All PHS canvassers will be wearing a uniform with a white shirt with a PHS patch on the shoulder. They will display a badge and wear blue pants OR be wearing a tan “polo” style shirt, with a photo ID badge and blue pants or jeans. Each canvasser will be able to answer your questions about licensing your dog.
You can call PHS at (626) 792-7151, ext. 115, during normal business hours to verify that the person is with PHS. Please remember that PHS is closed on Mondays.
Annual renewal of a dog license is required with proof of current rabies vaccination, according to state law. Rabies vaccines and certificates are valid for one to three years. Vaccinations are available at various veterinarian offices and also at PHS.
The canvassing is part of the City’s collaborative effort with PHS to improve animal services. Effective July 1, 2013, PHS assumed responsibility from the City to do all dog licensing in Pasadena.
Dog owners can continue to bring their dog’s license applications and rabies certificates directly to the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA, 361 South Raymond Ave., Pasadena, CA 91105. PHS is open Tuesday through from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. PHS is closed on Mondays.
