Dog Registration Regulations – 2016/2017 update on the laws in Beijing

 

Strict Enforcement of Dog Registration and Licensing in 2016

2016 is expected to be a year of strict enforcement for registering dogs. The government uses the dog licensing program to control and ensure rabies vaccinations for dogs. According to the Ministry of Health, the number of human rabies deaths in Beijing has been on the rise, increasing from 4 confirmed deaths in 2014 to 8 confirmed deaths as of August 2015. All of these rabies fatalities were caused by exposures to dogs.

 

All dogs must be rabies vaccinated annually in China. China does not recognize the 3-year rabies vaccines from other countries. Registered dogs must show proof of a legal rabies vaccination within the past 12-months to renew registration. The PSBs in various districts are already sending police officers into residential neighborhoods to remind dog owners to register their dogs. Even though the official dog registration period is from May 1st to June 30th, the crackdowns have begun earlier each year. ICVS strongly recommends owners to register and renew dog licenses by May 31st. Any dog that is not licensed is classified as a stray dog. Once the official crackdown begins after May 31st, unlicensed dogs may be taken away on the spot by the PSB. Owners will have to pay the dog licensing fee and also a potential fine of up to RMB 5000.00.

 

To renew dog licenses, owners must prove that their dogs received a rabies vaccination from an officially designated animal rabies vaccination hospital within the past 12-months. The PSB will not renew your dog license without proof of rabies vaccination for your dog. Your official vaccination certificate known as the Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book), should be brought to the PSB to verify your dog’s legal rabies vaccination. Some local hospitals are also issuing paper A4 rabies vaccination certificates which may also be used as proof of rabies vaccination at the PSB. Legally rabies vaccinated dogs are also required to wear the new rabies ID tag on their collars.

Officially Designated Animal Rabies Vaccination Hospitals

Please ensure your pet is vaccinated at a legally registered and officially designated animal rabies vaccination hospital. Only officially licensed and designated animal vaccination hospitals are allowed to purchase and administer animal vaccines that are legally imported, registered with the State Food & Drug Administration (SFDA) and safe for pets. Designated animal vaccination hospitals must display a gold plaque issued by the Agricultural Bureau featuring the hospital’s “Vaccine License Number” (see photo, below). Unauthorized facilities such as pet shops, pet product retailers, boarding kennels, grooming salons, dog training schools, non-designated animal clinics and pet hospitals are NOT permitted to procure and administer legally registered vaccines. Please take caution as you may risk having your pets injected with products that may have been sourced through unsecured illegal channels. These products may be expired, counterfeit, or improperly stored and ineffective (e.g., non-refrigerated vaccines). Pets that are vaccinated at non-designated rabies vaccination hospitals are not protected from rabies. More than 95% of the more than 3,000 annual human rabies deaths in China are traced back to dogs, most of whom were never vaccinated or were vaccinated at non-designated animal rabies vaccination hospitals.

Official “Animal Rabies Vaccination Clinic” plaque at ICVS

 

 ICVS is a legally registered and officially designated animal vaccination and full service pet hospital in Chaoyang District and can provide rabies, distemper and all other vaccinations for all pets. ICVS can issue the official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book) and the new rabies ID tags. The new rabies ID tags must be worn by all dogs and are issued together with the vaccination red books.

 

 The vaccination red book is an important legal document and is still required for dog registration and by the Quarantine Bureau to approve pets for overseas export or to take them to other cities. You no longer need to carry your vaccination red book with you when walking your dog as all dogs can now wear the rabies ID tag to prove legal rabies vaccinations.

 

 If you have a legally registered dog from any district in Beijing, bring your dog license ID card and your fa piao to enjoy 50% discounts on rabies and canine distemper vaccinations at ICVS!

 

 Dogs with valid dog licenses and fa piaos issued in Chaoyang District can enjoy a FREE annual rabies vaccination at ICVS AND 50% discount on the canine distemper vaccination.

 

 

Carrying Your Dog Licenses

Owners should carry their dog licenses with them when walking dogs or at least a photo copy of the dog license. If your dog license ID card has not been issued yet or if you are awaiting a replacement ID card, carry a copy of your “fa piao” that you received at the time of payment for the registration and licensing fee. The “fa piao” serves as proof that your dog is legally registered. During the dog registration drive and ensuing crackdown period, all persons walking dogs should carry a valid dog license or the “fa piao.” The PSB have in the past taken dogs away if the owners could not produce a valid dog license or fa piao on the spot.

 

Official Dog registration and licensing period in Beijing:

  • All dogs in Beijing municipality must be registered. There are no exceptions. The law applies to dogs owned by diplomats as well as to service dogs
  • For NEW dogs (never previously registered): Pet owners may register newly adopted or imported dogs anytime after January 1st. Please inquire with your local Public Security Bureau (PSB) to register your new dog. The registration will be valid from the date of registration payment until April 30, 2017
  • For dogs that are already registered: The registration renewal period for all dogs in BJ municipality runs from May 1st - June 30th each year. The renewed dog license will be valid this year from May 1, 2016 to April 30, 2017
  • The Public Security Bureau (PSB) administers dog registrations and issues licenses. Please check with your local PSB if you have any specific questions concerning registration of dogs in your neighborhood. Each local PSB precinct (Pai Chu Suo) will have the final say on registration of dogs within their neighborhoods.

 

Microchipping:

  • There is no municipality-wide microchipping requirement in Beijing for dog registration purposes. However, microchipping your pets (dogs and cats) is strongly recommended as it allows owners to prove ownership and also has helped lost and found pets be reunited with their families
  • For identification purposes, owners are recommended to attach a Pet ID tag to the collar with the mobile phone number engraved on the tag, even if the pet is already microchipped
  • ICVS can custom-engrave Pet ID tags for pet owners on-site within minutes
  • ICVS offers microchipping services for all pets with the European Union ISO 11784/11785 standard microchips. Please contact ICVS for more information about microchipping services.

 

Size Restrictions on Dogs and Registering Multiple Dogs:

  • Dogs registered within the 8 major districts of Beijing Municipality (e.g., Chaoyang, Dongcheng, Xicheng, Chongwen, Xuanwu, Haidian, Fengtai, and Shijingshan) must not be taller than 35-cm from the ground to shoulder
  • Only one dog may be registered per household address. If you own multiple dogs, you will need a second household address to register the second dog
  • The Beijing municipal government has also issued a list of 40 breeds of dogs deemed "aggressive" that may not be registered under any circumstances within the 8 districts of strict dog ownership enforcement. Please contact ICVS if you wish to check if your dog may be listed as a banned breed.

 

Initial Registration of your Dog:

  • If you are registering your dog for the very first time, you DO NOT NEED TO SHOW PROOF OF RABIES VACCINATION to the PSB. Explain to the police that you are registering your dog FOR THE FIRST TIME
  • The PSB’s assumption is that newly adopted dogs or puppies have not yet been rabies vaccinated by the new owner. Once you pay the registration fee and receive your license, you are eligible to go to an officially designated animal rabies vaccination hospital for a FREE or significantly discounted rabies vaccination
  • The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) is an officially designated animal rabies vaccination hospital. Dogs registered in Chaoyang District are eligible for a FREE rabies vaccination with proof of valid license and the “fa piao” (official receipt) from the PSB
  • All registered dogs with valid licenses from any other districts are eligible for discounted rabies and other vaccinations. This is part of ICVS’ program to encourage dog owners to register their dogs. The law requires all dogs in China to be rabies vaccinated each year. China does NOT recognize the 3-year animal rabies vaccines used by other countries
  • If your dog is spayed or neutered at an officially licensed and registered animal hospital such as ICVS, the hospital can issue you an official BJ “Spay/Neuter Certificate.” This spay/neuter certificate entitles the owner up to a 50% discount on the initial registration fee at the PSB (e.g., RMB 1,000.00 initial fee, reduced to RMB 500.00).

 

Annual Renewal of Dog Registration Licenses:

  • If you have already registered your dog last year, please ensure that you renew the registration for 2016/2017
  • All registered dogs must have their registrations renewed during May 1st - June 30th each year
  • If you spayed or neutered your dog after the initial registration, your official “Spay/Neuter Certificate” from ICVS will entitle you to a discount (e.g., up to RMB 200.00) on the registration renewal fee at the PSB. Check with your local PSB for details and restrictions
  • To RENEW the license, you will need to prove to your local PSB that your dog has been vaccinated for rabies at an officially designated animal rabies vaccination hospital. The PSB will ask you for the official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (vaccination red book) before renewing the license

“Rascal” has found a forever home! PDF Print E-mail

 

 rascalrennyicvs

Rascal and Renny pose for their first photo together as a family at ICVS.

Renny stocked up at the ICVS retail store and purchased food, toys, crates and everything Rascal needs to feel at home.

 

 

A very happy ending for little Rascal who has been adopted by Renny Harlin, a Hollywood film director, living in Beijing! Renny is the director of the new film "Skiptrace" starring Jackie Chan and Fan Bing Bing. Renny found Rascal's adoption notice on the ICVS web site and came over to the hospital to visit him. It was love at first meeting for both Renny and Rascal and we knew they were the perfect match for each other.

 

Rascal was cared for by ICVS after he was rescued from a dog meat slaughterhouse. Rascal was cared for and nursed back to health at ICVS. We could not be happier for Renny and Rascal!

 

Many thanks to everyone that helped promote Rascal and our many beautiful pets for adoption. Please support the ICVS Non-Profit Humane Animal Welfare Programs that allow wonderful pets like Rascal to be treated, rehabilitated and adopted to loving forever homes!

Introduction: Hi everyone! my name is Rascal!

 

Background: I was rescued by a very kind man from a dog meat slaughterhouse. I was no longer wanted by the vendors that were trying to sell me as a pet so they sold me to the slaughterhouse for salvage value. I was rescued and taken to ICVS, where I was diagnosed with Parvovirus. I was treated and cared for and nursed back to health. I am a survivor of the dog meat trade and am very happy and lucky to have survived. I am hoping for a new start in life with a new family that will love me forever.

 

 

Personality: Despite all I have been through, my nature and personality is very gentle, sweet and friendly. I adore people and am hoping for a forever home!

 

 

Ideal home: Rascal would be happiest with an individual, a couple or a family with older children (e.g., 8 years and older). Rascal must be a family member for life so taking him overseas when relocating is essential.

 

 

Breed: Rascal is a short haired, small Beagle mixed dog.

 

 

Sex and age: Rascal is a young dog of about 10-11 months old. 

 

Medical notes: Rascal is now very healthy and lively and has already been dewormed, treated for fleas and ticks, stool checked, vaccinated, microchipped and is already neutered.

Post-adoption care: The International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) has enrolled me into their Rescued/Stray/Rehomed Pet Adoption Benefits Program. ICVS will provide my new family with significant discounts (up to 50%) on my health examinations and vaccinations during my first year of life with my new family!

Official Vaccination Certificate: With my rabies vaccination, ICVS will issue my new family the official Beijing Animal Health and Immunity Certificate (e.g., vaccination red book) at no charge! I need the official vaccination red book to prove I have been legally and properly rabies vaccinated to move to another city or to leave China with my family.

Official Spay/Neuter Certificate for Dogs: After my neuter surgery, ICVS will issue my new family an official Spay/Neuter Certificate that will provide my owners with a 50% discount (e.g., up to RMB 500.00 savings) on my dog license registration fee at the Public Security Bureau!

Puppy and Adult Dog Obedience Training Programs at ICVS: ICVS has introduced new puppy and adult dog obedience training programs. The dog training classes will help me and my family live a more harmonious life together! All profits from the puppy and adult dog training programs will be donated to the ICVS Non-Profit Humane Animal Welfare Programs! Please contact ICVS for more information about canine obedience training.

Pet Import/Export Counseling: ICVS will provide my family with unlimited relocation counseling and accurate information to take me with them when it is time to move to another city or to another country.

Door-to-Door Pet Transport Service: ICVS can help my new family arrange for a car and driver service to take us door-to-door for my appointments at the hospital! Contact ICVS: www.ICVSASIA.com

Tibetan Mastiff Rescue at ICVS- Your suport is needed! PDF Print E-mail

Every year hundreds of thousands of dogs are being slaughtered for

their meat, fur and skin in China. Many of these dogs are abandoned

strays, stolen pets and discarded dogs that could not be sold by breeders.

Kept in desperate conditions without food and water for days, the dogs

are loaded into cramped cages on trucks to be sent to slaughterhouses

across the country.

 

In February 2015, about 150 large dogs were found on a truck in

North China, destined for the dog meat markets. On board this truck

were 20 Tibetan Mastiffs. A group of volunteers rescued the dogs

and the surviving animals were sent to shelters in several cities in

North China.

 

ICVS is working with the rescue volunteers and a local shelter to

provide medical care and treatment and to find adoption families

for 8 of these beautiful Tibetan Mastiffs.

The Tibetan Mastiffs under our care are in need of vaccinations,

flea and tick treatments, microchipping, neutering/spaying and

medical treatment and surgeries for injuries, wounds and other

treatable health issues.

 

ICVS is donating the skills and services of our veterinary surgeons,

veterinary technicians, administration and management staff and

our facilities in the care and treatment of these Tibetan Mastiffs

and the many stray/rescued/abandoned pets that we care for

every year. We need the help of the community to please donate

funds towards the cost of medical supplies, drugs, vaccines and

nutritious pet foods to care for these beautiful animals.

Puppy "JuBi" Survived Parvovirus with your generous support! PDF Print E-mail

 

 

jubi

 

 

 

Little "JuBi" was found in the streets by a kind person and then rescued and adopted by the Kim family.

 

 

jubi kim family

 

 

Within 24-hours of her rescue and adoption, JuBi began vomiting and had very bad diarrhea. Her mommy and daddy brought her to the International Center for Veterinary Services (ICVS) where she was thoroughly examined and tested. Unfortunately, JuBi was positive for Parvovirus, an infectious viral disease that can be fatal for most dogs. JuBi was very sick and has been hospitalized and treated at ICVS for over two-weeks. Jubi had a very strong will to survive and knew she was deeply loved by her family. With the generous donations from members of the community, Jubi was able to continue her life-saving treatments and hospitalized care. Jubi is now fully recovered and a Parvovirus survivor. She is truly a miracle puppy and is now completing her puppy vaccinations and will be spayed soon! 

Jubi, the Kim family and ICVS thank all of you for your kind support, well wishes and generous donations!

 

With your continued donations and support, ICVS can help beautiful pets like JuBi receive the life-saving medications and treatments necessary to overcome diseases such as Parvovirus. Thank you so much for your continued support.
