Animal Care and Control Announces New Fee Schedule

By on July 5, 2020

San Bernardino County’s Animal Care and Control has announced an increase for Dog licensing fees beginning July 1, 2020. These fees apply to residents of all unincorporated county areas and the cities of Highland, Yucaipa and Big Bear Lake.

The last time dog license fees were increased was 2016. Residents can still receive a discount on the fee if the dog is altered (spayed or neutered) and for senior citizens and disabled citizens with altered dogs.  Proof of spay/neuter certificate, senior citizen status, and disability are required to receive discounts.  Click here to review the new fee schedule.

Animal Care and Control recommends all dogs be spayed or neutered to help control the homeless animal population and is mandatory in the unincorporated county areas and in the cities of Highland and Yucaipa for pit bull and pit bull-type dogs.
