Q & A

Why Licence Your Dog?

Dog licence tags help to identify lost dogs effectively and reunite them with their family as quickly as possible. The purchase of a dog licence also helps to supplement the cost of animal control within Norfolk County, encouraging responsible pet ownership. Animal Control helps to ensure dogs, do not harm people, other animals or property throughout the County.

What about micro-chipping?

Micro-chipping is not required by the County, however it is encouraged as an additional measure to identify lost pets. (Contact your veterinarian for information on micro-chipping)

What happens if my dog is lost?

If your dog is licenced with us and is wearing its tag, Animal Control makes every effort to contact you prior to taking your dog to the pound. If your dog is lost and has no tag (or isn’t wearing the tag), contact Norfolk County Animal Control at 1-888-469-3247 to inquire if your dog has been picked up.

Dog Licences are required by law. Refusal to purchase a dog licence may results in fines being issued under Animal Care and Control By-Law 2014-46
