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 along with a cheque for the licence fee, or visit the second floor counter at City Hall (100 Newport Drive) to apply. We'll provide you with a permanent, bone-shaped metal tag for your dog. We do not issue new tags each year. 

Please include a copy of the veterinarian's certificate of spaying or neutering with your application.

Once you have created your dog licence account your 2020 licence renewal will not be emailed to you however, it will be available for view and payment through your myPortMoody account.
