Media Release: Dog Licensing Canvassers Continuing to Go Door to Door

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 10, 2015

Dog Licensing Canvassers Continuing to Go Door to Door

The Town of Stratford’s Dog Licensing Canvassers will be continuing to go door to door until the end of August. This extension provides Stratford residents with the opportunity to have a canvasser come to them – either by chance or by appointment arranged through Town Centre.

Licensing your dog will help the Town of Stratford and PEI Humane Society to quickly return lost dogs.. The program also assists with the costs to transport, house and care for lost dogs from our community until they can be reunited with their owner. The cost to license a spayed or neutered dog is $15 or $25 for a dog which is not spayed or neutered.

As outlined in the Town of Stratford’s Animal Control Bylaw, residents are required to annually register their dog. Failure to do so can result in a $100 fine for a first offence, with fines doubling and tripling for subsequent offences.

Dog licensing is the responsibly of pet owners within the Town of Stratford. With the assistance of the Dog Licensing Canvassers, residents are provided with a convenient option to license their dog. The deadline for all dog owners in the Town of Stratford to license their pet for 2015 is August 31, 2015.

If you would like to schedule a time for a canvasser to come to your door please call Town Centre at (902) 569-1995. Dog licenses may also be paid directly at Town Centre, Monday to Friday between 8am and 4pm.
