The City employs three Animal Services Officers. Their job is to enforce all animal regulations in Laguna Beach and Laguna Woods. They also oversee the City's dog park, affectionately known as the "Bark Park," and assist with the rehabilitation of injured wild animals and birds.
Please note: If it rains, the dog park is generally closed during the storm and for a day or two afterwards.
Dogs in Laguna Beach must be licensed. Licenses are good for one, two, or three years. Click here to purchase or renew a license. You'll need proof of rabies vaccination.

Tips for a healthy, well-trained pet from the Animal Shelter
Even with the windows open an inch or two, cars can be 40 degrees hotter than the outside temperature. Don't leave an animal in an unattended vehicle. It's dangerous, and depending on the situation, is against the law in Laguna Beach and the State of California. (Laguna Beach Municipal Code 6.24.090 and California Penal Code 597.7.)
