Pet owners: it's time to renew your dogand cat licences at www.cityofkingston.ca/pets.
Jan. 1, 2012 is the deadline to license your pets to receive the pettags that go on their collars and make it easier for strangers andanimal control officers to contact you about your lost pet.
City Bylaw 2004-144 requires dogs living in any part of the city, andcats living in the urban area to be licensed when they are 20 weeks ofage or older. Your pet's record - which includes address, vaccination,tattoos, and other identifying information - is updated when you renew.
You can also license your pet at City Hall, Payment Centre, 216 OntarioSt., the Kingston Humane Society, 1 Binnington Court, McEwen AnimalHospital, Princess Animal Hospital, Sims Animal Hospital, Collins BayAnimal Hospital, Frontenac Animal Hospital, Global Pet Foods and PetValu Discount Pet Food stores.
To encourage pet control, the City charges less to register or renew alicence for spayed or neutered pets than it does for pets that are notspayed or neutered. Guide dogs can be registered at no cost.
Owners who have registered their pets before will have receivedarenewal notice that has the pet's registration number on it. They canuse the registration number, and their Visa or MasterCard, to renewtheir pets' licences online.
DOG PARK USERS: Dogs in off-leash dog parks must wear an up-to-date tag.
