Municipal officials say Chatham-Kent residents need to purchase their municipal dog tags by June 30 to avoid a late fee and possible enforcement action.
All residents in Chatham-Kent who own a dog are required by law to have a dog licence, Municipal officials said.
“These licences can be purchased by calling 519-360-1998 using a credit card or go to PAWR’s website to purchase online using PayPal, and the tags will be mailed to you,” Pet And Wildlife Rescue officials said in a press release.
“If neither of these options work for you, you can call customer service at the number above.”
If residents fail to purchase a dog licence, or fail to renew their 2019 dog licences, enforcement officers will be going door-to-door in July and August, and may issue a fine of $240 per dog, Municipal officials said.
“Dog licences are $28 for a fixed dog… $38 for a non-fixed dog,” Pet And Wildlife Rescue officials say.
“Dog licences are important as they will help identify lost dogs and reunite them with their owners quickly. The revenue from dog licences will go directly to help fund animal services within the community of Chatham-Kent.”
