City of Kitchener
Licensing

Effective January 14th, 2021,
While our centres remain closed to the public, pet licences can be purchased/renewed online, using the form below or over the phone with a credit card.


CITY OF KITCHENER

Pursuant to City of Kitchener By-law 2014- 138 all dogs must be licensed annually.

As part of its effort to address the issue of pet overpopulation, the City of Kitchener has implemented higher licencing fees for non-sterilized dogs. Before a licence for a sterilized dog is issued, the owner shall submit a copy of their certificate of sterilization; or the owner shall otherwise satisfy the Poundkeeper that their dog is sterilized. To keep our records up to date, please contact our office (519) 745-5615 if you no longer own or have a dog. If your dog has passed away, please contact us and accept our condolences.

Purchase your tag online and get a $25 voucher for Ren’s Pets Depot!

For more information on how to redeem, see our info page.

 The voucher is redeemable at Ren’s Pets Depot store located at 1525 Victoria St N, Kitchener, ON N2B 3E4 or at any other Ren’s Pets Depot locations.
