Courtenay dog owners, it’s time to renew your licences.
2018 dog licences are now available from Courtenay City Hall.
All dogs over the age of six months living in the City must be licensed.
The fee for a neutered male or spayed female is $5 annually. For unneutered males or unspayed females, the fee is $25 annually. Licences expire each year on Dec. 31 and must be renewed annually.
To purchase a licence, bring your payment to Courtenay City Hall, 830 Cliffe Avenue, and provide your name, address and phone number, as well as your dog’s name, breed, colour, and gender. For first-time licensing, please bring proof of spay/neuter status from your veterinarian.
Revenue from the dog licence program helps fund the City’s contract with the SPCA; and by having a dog licence, it will be easier to reunite you with your fuzzy friend if he or she goes missing. You’ll also avoid an “unlicensed dog” ticket, which starts at $100 for a first offence.
