Changes to animal licensing in Union City
Submitted By City of Union City
As of July 1, 2018, all licensing of animals will be done at City Hall in Union City, NOT the Fremont Animal Shelter.
Effective July 5, 2018 residents will no longer have the option to redeem their dog from an adopter within 30 days of the adoption. Previously, the owner of the animal was able to redeem the adopted dog back from the adopter within 20 days and with a full refund in fees paid to the animal shelter.
There is also a new section of law related to the impound of strays that are not spayed or neutered, which requires a dog or cat that is impounded two or more times to be spayed or neutered and microchipped before it is released to the owner. The owner is responsible for all fees payable to Fremont Animal Shelter.
