The date is August 1st. My dog is eight (8) months old, it has just
had it's rabies shots that the vet says is good for one (1) year. Must
my dog be vaccinated before I renew its license next January?

issues dog licenses on an annual basis, January 1 thru December 31 of each
year. According to the California State Health & Safety Code,
Sec:121690(g) the license period shall not extend beyond the remaining
period of validity for the current rabies vaccination. So yes, since
the original vaccination was in August the dog would need to be vaccinated
again before the deadline of March 31 in order to have a valid license
through the end of the year.
