If your dog is four months or older, you’ll need to purchase a dog licence and renew it every year. Read our Animal Control Bylaw to learn more. 

Apply for a dog licence

Please send us a completed dog licence application found below. Payments can be made online, or in person at the second floor counter at City Hall (100 Newport Drive). We'll provide you with a permanent, bone-shaped metal tag for your dog. We do not issue new tags each year. 

Dog Licence Application

City Hall hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5pm.
Please include a copy of the veterinarian's certificate of spaying or neutering with your application.

We've gone paperless!

We no longer mail out paper renewal bills. To receive your renewal bill via email, you’ll need to log in to myPortMoody and choose eBilling when you’re registering a new dog account or editing an existing one. 

myPortMoody is an online service that gives you quick and easy access to information such as City of Port Moody dog licences, property taxes, utilities, and business licences. You can view and manage your accounts and make payments, all in one place. Register today!

NOTE: Even if you have previously purchased a dog licence in Port Moody, you will not receive an email notification to renew your dog licence unless you have created a dog licence account online at myPortMoody and subscribed to eBilling.
