In the City of Regina, all cats and dogs must have a license. The penalty for not licensing your cat or dog is $250.00.
An animal license enables Animal Protection officers to return your missing cat or dog to you as soon as possible. It also tells strangers your lost pet is not a stray and needs to be returned to its family.
Dogs must wear their license tags at all times.
Cats that have a microchip or legible tattoo do not need to wear their license tags. Cats must wear their license tags if they have no form of permanent identification, or if they have tattoos that are no longer legible.
The cost of a one-year license:
- for puppies (up to six months old) and altered dogs – $25.00
- for unaltered dogs – $100.00.
- altered cats – $20.00
- unaltered kittens (up to six months old) – $20.00
- unaltered cats – $100.00
When you license your pet, you are issued a permanent tag. If the tag is lost, you will need to purchase a replacement tag. To do so, please contact any City of Regina Veterinary Clinic, the Regina Humane Society or The City of Regina. The cost of a replacement tag is $5.00.
How to obtain / renew your cat or dog license:
Every year in November, the City of Regina mails renewal forms out to any owner who purchased a license in the previous licensing year. If you have moved within the licensing year, please ensure you contact the City of Regina to update your personal information so the renewal notice can be mailed to the correct location.
To purchase a new license please attend to any City of Regina Veterinary Clinic, the Regina Humane Society or The City of Regina. You will be required to fill out a License Permit. If your pet is sterilized, you must also provide proof of sterilization. If proof is not obtained, you will be charged the fee for an un-altered pet.
Please note: The fine for not licensing your cat or dog is $250.00.
