State law requires all dogs over the age of 4 months to be licensed in the area that they live. If a dog is lost or injured this identification makes it possible to contact the dog's owner. Contact the Livermore City Hall Finance Department to obtain a license. Be ready to provide them with current rabies vaccine information from a licensed veterinarian and documentation verifying that your dog has been spayed or neutered. Licenses are only valid through the rabies expiration date therefore, if the rabies vaccination has expired or will expire in the next two months a new rabies vaccine needs to be administered before a dog license can be issued. Please call (925) 960-4315 or E-mail for further information.

An Animal Fancier Permit is required for ownership of over six household pets (only three of which can be dogs) or any live stock or exotic animals such as: pot belly pigs, honeybees, chickens, geese, and reptiles over six feet in length.
