Dog Licence



Licensing your dog gives you peace of mind. A dog licence enables the By-law Enforcement Department to contact you quickly and easily in the event that your dog wanders away from you or your property or is injured on the road.


The Animal Control By-law requires that all dogs over the age of 6 months be licensed. You must purchase your licence before March 1st of each year. You need to complete Dog Licence Application to register your dog.

You can register your pet:

  • In person at the Town Office; or
  • By mail: Municipal Office, 52 Seguin St, Parry Sound P2A 1B4

In 2017 the Town of Parry Sound started a Life Time Tag Program which allows residents to purchase their dog's tag once in it's lifetime. The license fee for a new dog is $50.00 and a renewing dog tag is $30.00.

If you have a current dog licence and your pet has passed away or you no longer have the dog please let us know by emailing Administration. We will update your dog licence record so that you will no longer receive dog licence reminders for your dog.

"One Free Ride" Program

When found at large for the first time your licensed dog will receive one free ride home.

It is the Town's way of thanking the responsible pet owners who licensed their pet.
