Pet Licence

Pet Licence - Cat

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.

  • $35 for an unaltered dog or cat with a microchip implant
  • $20 for an altered dog or cat
  • $15 for a lifetime licence for an altered dog or cat with a microchip implant

Proof of your pet's spay/neuter certificate and microchip implant certificate is required at the time you purchase your licence. 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. Whenever an animal is impounded, pound fees are applicable.
