Dog Variance Fee

Kamloops, B.C. - 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 a resident has more than two dogs he or she can apply to Council for a variance to have more than three dogs or a combination with other animals for a total of four animals. The applicant must pay a non-refundable $350 variance application fee.

City Council agreed to waive the $350 dog variance application fee for 2012 if the application met the following criteria:

However, please note that effective January 1st, 2013, there will no longer be a waiver to the application fee and the full $350 fee will be in effect.
