The Comox Valley Regional District requires all dogs over six months of age to be licensed every year within Electoral Area A – Baynes Sound (except Hornby and Denman), Area B – Lazo North and Area C – Puntledge and Black Creek.
Starting Nov. 1, residents within the three areas will be able to purchase their 2021 dog licence. Licences are valid from Jan. 1 until Dec. 31 each year. Residents who live in Courtenay, Comox and Cumberland must contact their municipal office to obtain an annual dog licence.
“Dog licences help ensure that your lost pet quickly finds its way back home,” said Amanda Yasinski, Manager of Bylaw Compliance with the CVRD. “Within the CVRD electoral areas, all dogs require a licence if they are over six months old.”
The cost to licence a spayed or neutered dog is five dollars. The cost for a non-spayed or neutered dog is $15. Remember to purchase your 2021 dog licence before Dec. 31. Dog licence fees are set to increase in 2021.
