Time to renew, purchase dog licences in Comox Valley

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

2020 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 five dollars 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 license, 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 your 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 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.

•The Comox Valley Regional District also requires dogs over six months to be licensed yearly in Areas A, B and C.

Starting Nov. 15, residents within these electoral areas will be able to purchase their 2020 dog licence. Licences are valid from Jan. 1 – Dec. 31 each year.

“Dog licences help ensure that your lost pet quickly finds its way back home,” said Amanda Yasinski, manager of bylaw compliance with the CVRD.

The cost to licence a spayed or neutered dog is five dollars. The fee is $15 for a non-spayed or neutered dog. There are several locations for purchasing licences in the district:
