When do dogs need to be licensed?

When you move into Rialto or acquire a new dog, a dog license must be purchased within 30 days. Puppies must be licensed by the age of four months.

However, if you are a new resident and had your dog licensed where you used to live, you may qualify for a "transfer" license if you apply within 45 days of moving here and provide proof of the other agency’s current license. Please note that dog tag from another agency, including San Bernardino County, is not valid in Rialto.
