Cranbrook, BC (January 11, 2021) -- Dog license renewal notices for 2021 are expected to arrive in mailboxes around the City of Cranbrook early in the new year. You are asked to please wait until the renewal notice arrives before visiting City Hall for your 2021 dog license, as it makes the renewal process faster.
Dog licenses are valid for the calendar year (January 1 to December 31). The licensing fee for a sterile dog is $40.00, and the fee for an intact dog is $60.00. If you renew your license before February 26, 2021 you will receive a $25.00 discount on your fee.
Due to COVID restrictions, if you do not want to visit City Hall, you may call us at 250-489-0233 and pay for your renewal with your credit card over the phone and the new tag will be mailed to you. Please remember that with credit card payments, there is a 2.4% convenience fee included in the cost. In the case of a dog license, the fee on a $15 renewal is 36 cents; $35 renewal for intact dogs will have an 84-cent fee.
Any dogs over two months of age must have a valid license. It is important for all dogs in the City have a license, as it greatly improves the ability of bylaw officers to quickly reunite you and your dog.
