Los Angeles, July 1, 2021 – It’s “ID Your Pet Day” and with the upcoming 4th of July holiday weekend – when many pets become lost due to the loud noise brought about by fireworks – LA Animal Services wants to remind pet owners to make sure your dog or cat is wearing an ID tag and is microchipped. Dogs over four months of age must be licensed, and the license tag must be affixed to their collar.
If for any reason your pet escapes and becomes lost, a microchip
that's registered with your correct contact information, as well as a collar or harness with a current license and/or ID tag on it, will help reunite you with your companion animal right away!
If your pet is not microchipped, you may contact any of our LA Animal Services Centers and schedule an appointment to have your companion animal chipped. The cost for the general public is $15.00 per animal. For information or to schedule an appointment, call (888) 452-7381. Most veterinary clinics also offer microchipping!
Our LA Animal Services Centers are open by appointment. We will be closed on Monday, July 5 to observe the 4th of July holiday.
