Did you know that vaccinating your dog against the rabies virus and licensing them is required by law in the City of Victorville? Did you also know that the City of Victorville has the best licensing program in the High Desert with some of the greatest benefits that no other jurisdiction provides?

Some of our great benefits include:

If you already have a license and it is about to expire, renew today! Remember to keep your vaccinations current because you must provide a copy of the rabies certificate during the renewal process.

Free License

The city is currently offering an amnesty for new dog licenses for the remainder of 2023! This amnesty is open to City of Victorville residents. To qualify for amnesty, the dog must be microchipped.  If your canine family member is not microchipped, the Animal Care & Control can do this for free. Call the Animal Care & Control Office at (760) 955- 5089 for more information or to make your microchip appointment.

License requirements

To license your canine family member, you will need to have it vaccinated against the rabies virus and provide us with a copy of its current rabies certificate. A certificate of sterility is also required for all canines that are spayed or neutered. See below for pricing.
