Pet Licensing


Purchase or Renew a Pet License

Pet licenses are valid for one year from the date of purchase and must be renewed annually. There is a base $250 fine for not licensing a dog or cat over 4 months old. Microchips are not licenses, however they can be tied to a valid pet license.

Reminder letters are sent one month prior to the license expiring. For renewals, you will need the following information provided on your Pet License Renewal notice:

  • Person ID Number
  • License Tag Number

Pet license purchases and renewals can also be made in person at City Hall, the Saskatoon Animal Control Agency, the SPCA or any participating pet license vendors.

Enjoy the many benefits of licensing your pet!
