License Your Dog

The City of Regina’s Animal Bylaw No. 2009-44 outlines your responsibilities if you own a dog 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 dog licence tag at City Hall (2476 Victoria Avenue), the Regina Humane Society  or at your veterinarian clinic.

Cost of a dog licence

The cost of a dog licence is $100 a year but is reduced to $25 a year for:

  • sterilized dogs (spayed/neutered)
  • a puppy (under 6 months of age)
  • a show dog (copy of entry form & receipt from dog show's secretary)

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

Fines for unlicensed dogs

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