Don’t forget to renew your dog licence!

It’s that time of year when all four legged residents of Chestermere need a renewed licence. Renewal notices were mailed to Chestermere dog owners last month and the deadline to renew is January 31, 2017.  

“Licensing your dog is quick and easy, and allows us to contact the owner and arrange for the safe return of their pet,” said Chris Lamb, Sergeant of the Chestermere Community Peace Officer Program. “We cannot identify the owners of dogs without a licence and often are forced to hand the dog over to a third party service provider to care for the animal.” 

Did you get a puppy for Christmas? As a new dog owner, you must obtain a licence as soon as your puppy turns three months old. You can view the dog licence application form online at

Dog licences can be renewed by submitting payment to City Hall in person, on the phone or via the City Hall entrance drop box. Dogs that are spayed or neutered are $35 to licence, non-altered dogs are $55 and vicious dogs cost $200.

If your dog does not have a licence, owners can be subject to a $250 fine as per the Animal Control Bylaw 018-14. The failure to display the licence can also result in a $125 fine. More information on the Animal Control Bylaw can be viewed online at

For the safety of your pet, and to ensure you are not subject to penalties, it’s important to renew your dog licence.
