In Thunder Bay, all pet owners must license their dogs and cats within 14 days of ownership. Licences must be kept on your pet at all times, to enable us to reunite you with your lost pet. We'll even give your pet a free ride home the first time.

In situations where the Officer attempts to deliver an animal home and the owner is not home, notification will be left and the animal will be brought to the Animal Services Centre.
