Door-to-Door Licensing (Canvassing)

    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.
