DOG TAG AND LICENSING ENFORCEMENT

The Town of Tecumseh (Town) will be conducting a door-to-door canvass to ensure that all dog owners have registered their dog(s). The Town has retained the services of Commissionaires Ottawa to conduct the canvass. The Commissionaires will be canvassing starting May 29 to approximately June 30 during the day, evening and weekend hours. The Commissionaires will be wearing an identifiable uniform and have identification.

Dog Owners will be asked to complete the 2018 Dog Licence Renewal Application (Application), and provide payment of the $35.00 fee. The Commissionaires will accept cash, debit or cheque made payable to the Town of Tecumseh. The Application and payment may also be returned to the Town Hall Offices in person or by mail. The Town accepts payments in the form of a cheque, debit or cash. Please do not send cash by mail. If submitted by mail, a new dog tag will be sent by return mail.

The 2018 Dog Licence Application is available here.

The Town`s Dog Licensing By-Law 2003-91 requires the owner of every dog to obtain a licence and tag for each dog owned. A person who violates any provision of the By-Law is guilty of an offence and upon conviction, shall forfeit and pay a fine not to exceed the maximum permitted under the Provincial Offences Act.

Should you no longer own a dog, kindly contact the Corporate Services & Clerks Department at 519-735-2184 Ext. 109 or 143 to have the Town`s Dog Registry amended or with further questions relating to dog licensing.
