Important Seaaca and Pico Rivera dog license update

Greetings from Southeast Area Animal Control Authority (SEAACA)!  On behalf of the City of Pico Rivera, effective January 1, 2017, SEAACA will be providing animal licensing service to Pico Rivera residents. SEAACA has been your animal care and control agency for more than 30 years and our animal care center is located at 9777 Seaaca Street, Downey, California, 90241. Our main phone number is (562) 803-3301 and website address is


Our Licensing Department is located at 9777 Seaaca Street, in the City of Downey and our Licensing Department office hours are Tuesday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. We are closed Sunday, Monday, and major Holidays. Our contact number is (562) 803-3301 ext. 239.


Effective January 1, 2017, the processing of your animal licensing needs will shift from the City of Pico Rivera City Hall to SEAACA. Pico Rivera City Hall will only accept license renewal mail on behalf of SEAACA during City Hall hours. Your pet will keep its SEAACA Timeless Tag. SEAACA Timeless Tag fees are paid every fiscal year. If you have lost your pet’s license tag, the replacement tag fee is $3.00. Senior rates are available for any person over 62 years of age.


California state law requires all dogs over the age of 4 months and older, are required by law to be licensed annually and to have a rabies vaccination valid for the entire licensing period. A valid license with current information also identifies the pet's owner and allows them to be reunited with their pet in case they ever get lost.


A courtesy renewal letter will be mailed prior to your pets’ tags expiration. Please notify SEAACA Licensing department by mail when the status of your pet changes (i.e. spayed/neutered, moved, change of ownership, deceased, etc.). Dog license fees are subject to change per City Council approval.


For your convenience, SEAACA offers a low-cost vaccination clinic at SEAACA Animal Care Center. The clinic hours are Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The clinic is closed on Sundays, Mondays, and major Holidays. Please bring your pet vaccination records from home when visiting our Care Center. 



We look forward to serving you and your pets!
