If your pet does not have a licence, you will also have to pay for it to be licensed.
Benefits of Licensing
Licensing your pet helps to identify and protect your pet in case it becomes lost. Even indoor pets can get out and become lost. A pet licence is not only a requirement, but it provides the following benefits:
- A licence tells everyone that your pet is not a homeless stray.
- With a licence, you are eligible for one waived Impound fine and one waived running at large fine per year provided the animal is clamied by the owner within 24 hours.
- Animal licensing is an essential part of animal care and control in our community. Licence fees support animal control services, animal impoundment services and administrative and educational services.
