Is your pet licenced yet? The City of Winnipeg Animal Services Agency is offering a pet licence amnesty campaign from August 22 to September 30, 2016.
Amnesty will allow a non-licenced pet owner the opportunity to purchase a licence without any any retroactive licence fees and additional fines. The campaign aims to encourage dog and cat owners who have never licenced their pets to take this opportunity to purchase a licence.
It is the law in the City of Winnipeg that all dogs and cats over the age of six months must be licenced. Owners of dogs and cats over six months of age without a licence are subject to a $250 fine.
Effective October 1, 2016, Winnipeg will become a zero-tolerance pet licensing city. Zero tolerance means that if you are a pet owner and your pet does not have a current licence, you will be immediately subject to a $250 fine.
There are various ways to purchase or renew a pet licence:
- Online: winnipeg.ca/animalservices
- Phone: 311
- Animal Services Agency – 1057 Logan Avenue
- Bilingual Service Centre – 170 Goulet Street
- Community By-Law Enforcement Services Division – 18 – 30 Fort Street
