Within city limits, all dogs require a licence after they turn 6 months old.
If you see any injured or dead animals, please report them to our office at 828-3409. The phone lines are answered 24/7.
Out of town dog licence's are invalid, but a replacement licence is available for any dog currently licensed in another municipality for a cost of $15.
Licenses are available at retail outlets between January 1st and June 30th. After they can be purchased at City Hall, Animal Control or online for existing accounts.
If you were mailed a reminder to renew your dog licence, you have all the information you need about your account to renew it through this Web site.
A replacement licence may be purchased for a cost of $15 at the Animal Control Office.
The City's Dog Responsibility and Control By-law requires that no one shall keep, harbour, or have more than two dogs over the age of six months within the City. If you have more than 2 dogs you can apply to Council for a variance to have more than 3 dogs or a combination with other animals for a total of 4 animals.
The applicant must pay a non-refundable $350 variance application fee.
If approved the variance applies only to the specific dogs listed in the variance application and no dog in excess of the 2 dog limit may be replaced in the future.
