Does my dog have to be spayed or neutered (altered), microchipped and rabies vaccinated in Culver City?

Dogs in Culver City are required to be spayed or neutered (altered) [Los Angeles County Code 10.20.350]. All dogs over the age of 4 months in Culver City are required to be implanted with an identifying microchip [Los Angeles County Code 10.20.185]. All dogs over the age of 4 months in Culver City are required to be currently rabies vaccinated [Culver City Municipal Code 9.01.380]. Even if your dog never leaves the house, your dog must still have a dog license and must be spayed/neutered (altered), rabies vaccinated and microchipped. At some point and time your dog may accidentally get out, there may be a disaster and you get separated from your dog, or a stray or sick animal can enter your property. Having your dog microchipped and a license tag on your dog helps Culver City Animal Services get your dog back to you. Violations are subject to citations with fines up to $500.

Dogs that are unable to be spayed, neutered, microchipped and rabies vaccinated without a high likelihood of suffering serious bodily harm or death due to age or infirmity will require written confirmation from a licensed veterinarian to qualify for this exception.

These ordinances have exemptions for these cases:

v Dogs which are unable to be spayed or neutered without a high likelihood of suffering serious bodily harm or death due to age or infirmity (Written confirmation from a licensed veterinarian is required to qualify for this exception.)

v Dogs used by law enforcement agencies for law enforcement purposes

v Service or assistance dogs that assist disabled persons

v Competition dogs (A Competition Dog is a dog which is used to show, to compete or to breed, which is of a breed recognized by and registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC), United Kennel Club (UKC), American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA) or other approved breed registries.
