IVHS to Begin Pet License Canvassing
Starting this month, the Inland Valley Humane Society and S.P.C.A. (IVHS) will begin visiting neighborhoods citywide as part of its biennial pet license canvassing.
This door-to-door canvassing effort will continue into September and is aimed at increasing pet licensing compliance. It will be similar to the previous effort in that canvassers will only be dropping off literature and not attempting face-to-face contact with residents. The literature will provide information on why and how to obtain or renew a license for the family dog(s) or cat(s).
In Diamond Bar, annual pet licenses and tags are required for both dogs and cats over the age of 4 months. Proof of current rabies vaccination is required for all dog licenses, and a spay/neuter certificate is required to obtain a license at a reduced fee.
License fees are $30 for spayed or neutered dogs and $100 for unaltered dogs. For cats, the license fee is $5 if spayed or neutered and $10 if not. Veterans, active-duty service members, and adults age 60 or older pay only $10 for a spayed/neutered dog license.
New Online Licensing Platform
In late May, IVHS began using DocuPet, a modern and easy-to-use online license application and delivery platform. Through this new licensing platform, residents are able to set up a secure online profile for their pets, pay for and download their pet license(s), pick from a variety of designer pet tags, and access lost pet services, if needed.
To learn more or apply for a pet license, visit www.ivhsspca.docupet.com. Alternatively, pet licenses can also be obtained in person by visiting IVHS (500 Humane Way, Pomona) during its operating hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday, or over the phone by calling (909) 623-9777.
