Mayor calls for animal canvassing

DOWNEY - Mayor Luis Marquez, a paid member of SEAACA's board of directors, directed city staff Tuesday to investigate the possibility of a city-wide canvassing effort to ensure pets here are properly licensed and vaccinated.The L.A. County Department of Animal Care and Control regularly conducts canvassing sweeps in unincorporated communities. Animal control officials were in Thousand Oaks this week, where dog owners were required to show proof of registration and vaccination. Residents without proof were subject to a $40 "field enforcement fee."
