All dogs in BWG must be licenced by January 31 annually

Town of BWG by-laws require all dog owners to obtain a licence for each dog they own by January 31 of every year. When the licence is purchased, the owner receives a tag to put on the dog’s collar with a number correlating to our file with the owner’s address and phone number.

Through January 31, purchase a tag for a spayed or neutered dog for $25, or for an intact animal for $30. Prices go up by $5 on February 1.

What does your fee do?

Money collected from the sale of dog licences supports BWG’s animal control program, which:

• responds to calls about lost pets, animals at large and dog bites.

• gets dogs home fast! By requiring annual licences and a tag on each dog's collar, our records with owners’ contact information are up-to-date (microchips and lifetime tags often aren’t).

• rescues and shelters sick, injured and stray domestic animals and helps unclaimed animals find new homes.

• shares missing pet posts and photos of found animals on Facebook. Follow them at:
