2019 dog licences available at Courtenay City Hall

Courtenay dogs, it’s time to renew your licence.

2019 dog licences are 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 five dollars annually. For un-neutered males or un-spayed females, the fee is $25 per year. 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 Ave., and provide your name, address and phone number, as well as your dog’s name, breed, colour and gender. For first-time licensing, bring proof of spay/neuter status from a veterinarian.

Revenue from the dog licence program helps fund the City’s contract with the SPCA. 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.
