License fee for 1 year for a altered dog/cat is $40 which is already very expensive. They do not send out notices that the license is due. What they do is charge you $20 late fee per animal and then $40 field enforcement fee. I am a struggling individual with high rent, taxes, FINES and few job opportunities in LA county. Orange County fee's are $27 for license. I am just so tired of being taxed to death and hit with hidden fee's. Just mail me the darn notice so I can pay it and stop sending the goons to collect $160 from me the VERY NEXT DAY after a notice is dropped off.
