Found Pets:

If the dog or cat does not have a collar or tag, it may have a microchip that can be read by a vet or shelter that identifies the owner. Instead of holding on to the animal, it is better to take it to a shelter where it can be identified and entered into their database for searching by the owners.

Dog Licensing:

All dogs over four months of age and kept within the City of Los Angeles must be licensed (LAMC 53.28) and must be spayed or neutered (LAMC 53.15.2(b)). A dog license is valid only when the required rabies vaccination certificate, issued by a licensed veterinarian, is provided to the Department and only as long as the rabies vaccination is effective. (LAMC 53.51 ).
