Toronto Animal Services - Pet Licensing
The Toronto Municipal Code Chapter 349, requires that all dogs and cats owned in the City of Toronto must be licensed and wearing a tag. By licensing your dog or cat, Animal Services will make every effort to reunite you with your pet.

If you are taken to court under the current law, the maximum penalty is a $5,000.00 fine. Be a responsible owner, license your pet today! The new licence/registration fee structure is as follows.
