Pet Licenses

One in three pets goes missing in their lifetime. A City of Regina Pet License can help make sure your best friend gets home faster. They enable Animal Protection Officers to return your missing pet to you as soon as possible and show strangers your lost pet is not a stray and needs to be returned to its family.

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.

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.

How to obtain or renew your pet license:

You can register or renew your Pet License in person at the Regina Humane Society, on the Regina Humane Society website, at any Regina veterinary clinic. The City of Regina mails renewal forms out every November 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. If it’s your first year registering your pet, 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 unaltered pet.  for more information regarding pet licenses, please see the City of Regina website.

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

All pet licenses expire on December 31 regardless of when they were purchased during the year. Note that there is a $1.00 per license processing fee when licenses are renewed or purchased online through the Regina Humane Society website.  The processing fee, and a portion of the license fee, help animals in need when purchased through the Regina Humane Society.

Replacement tags:

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.

Make it legal and make sure your pet gets home!
