License Your Cat

Grey kitten wears his cat licence around her neck The City of Regina’s Animal Bylaw No. 2009-44  outlines your responsibilities if you own a cat within the city limits. The bylaw ensures you license your pet and helps to reduce the number of stray and nuisance animals in Regina.


Where to purchase a licence

You can purchase your stainless steel cat licence tag at City Hall (2476 Victoria Avenue), the Regina Humane Society  or at your veterinarian clinic.

Cost of a cat licence

The cost of a cat licence is $100 a year but is reduced to $20 a year for:

  • sterilized cats (spayed or neutered)
  • a kitten (under 6 months of age)
  • a show cat (copy of entry form & receipt from cat show's secretary)

A replacement tag costs $5 if you lose your original licence tag.

My Pet Matters

The City of Regina has teamed up with the Leader-Post to bring this exciting rewards program to the pet owners who license their dogs and cats each year. These responsible pet owners will receive a My Pet Matters Rewards Card in the mail following the purchase or renewal of their pet licence. With the My Pet Matters card, you can more than recover the cost of pet licensing through the discounts on products and services offered by our participating retailers. 

Fines for unlicensed cats

Failure to purchase a cat licence may result in a fine amount between $150 and $350.
