Dog Tag Licensing

For your convenience, dog tags and renewals can be purchased securely on-line by clicking the Dog Tag Licensing Online Registration Form, and completing all required fields as indicated on the form. Online transactions will receive a receipt by way of email to the address provided on the form. New tags purchased online will be mailed out to the address provide​d​ on the form. If you purchased a tag previously, you will not be issued a new license number or tag - the tag you received​ is your permanent tag.

Dog tag(s) may also be purchased over the phone by credit card, by calling the Township Administration Center at (705) 487-2171. 

​Similar to the past, you will be required to renew your license each year; all tags expire on December 31st of the year in which they were purchased. As part of the renewal process, you will no longer receive a new tag each year - the tag and the serial number will remain the same year to year. Dog tag(s) are non-transferable. 

Please note: if the ownership of the dog changes or a new dog is acquired, a new tag must be purchased.

Email reminders will be sent out throughout the year to remind all dog owners of the current legislation, any proposed changes, and to remind all dog owners of the renewal process.
