Dog and Kennel Licences
The Township Dog Licence By-law requires every dog owner to register their dog(s) annually. The licence expires December 31st each year. Owners must renew their dog licences by March 1st or for new dogs, purchase within 10 days of becoming a new dog owner. Registering your dog(s) not only demonstrates responsible pet ownership, but it also helps with identification and the safe return of your pet if they are missing.
Whether applying for a licence online or in person, you will be required to provide the following information:
- Owner’s name, address, and telephone number
- Dog name, breed, colour, and sex
You can fill out the Dog Licence Application to purchase your dog tag(s).
It is required that anyone, personal or business, who has more than 3 dogs has the proper zoning on their property in order to obtain a kennel licence. You can contact the Township’s By-Law department for more information.
