Dog Licencing

Contact Us

All dogs must be registered with Saugeen Shores. A dog tag must be affixed to the dog's collar at all times. If you get a new dog please come into the Municipal Office to register your dog and to purchase a tag for a fee. If your dog is already registered with us, commencing January 2016 you will receive an invoice and a permanent dog tag in the mail.   In subsequent years, you will receive an invoice only.  Should you require a replacement tag, they are available at the municipal office.

Dogs with microchips are registered with the Town for a one-time fee and receive one tag.

It is your responsibility to notify us if there is any change to your pet's information.

It is against the Animal Control By-law to allow your dog to run freely off your property unless the owner of the property has given you permission.

Kennel Licencing

Licenses for kennels will only be issued for those kennels located on property which comply with the Comprehensive Zoning By-laws for the Corporation.

No person shall keep a kennel of dogs in the Town of Saugeen Shores except under the authority of a currently valid license which must be renewed annually before the 1st of June.
