Humane Society launch door-to-door pet license check
Employees from the Inland Valley Humane Society (IVHS) will begin conducting neighborhood canvasses in the next two weeks, according to the Claremont Police Department.
The employees, who will have an identification badge and IVHS paperwork, will be insuring compliance with the city’s dog licensing requirements. Less than one percent of the animals that are rescued from the streets and temporarily placed into IVHS animal shelters have some form of ID on them. The Humane Society can look up license information in the computer and determine contact information for the owner including address, phone number and whether the dog has a current rabies vaccination. Licensing pets is mandatory by law for all dogs over four months in the state of California.
