Dogs in Wellington North Township require a dog license which is renewed annually due by January 15th.

In 2018 Wellington North is moving to a permanent tag system with an annual licensing fee of $15.00 per dog. The tag issued in 2017 will be your permanent tag for the dog for which it was issued and should be kept on your dog’s collar so we can locate you as owner should your dog go missing.

If you need a replacement tag, the cost is $10.00. If you get a new dog, the initial fee is $25.00 with an annual fee of $15.00 thereafter.

This permanent tag system reduces the need to dispose of and replace tags every year which reduces the cost for everyone. It alleviates the need for you to drive to Kenilworth to pick up your annual tag. Replacement tags are designed of a weight and shape so they can be mailed easily.
The purchase of a dog license helps us to reunite you with your lost dog, as the tag number corresponds with the owner contact information in our registration system.
