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 microchipping?

Microchipping is not required by the County; however, it is encouraged as an additional measure to identify lost pets. Contact your veterinarian for information on microchipping.

What happens if my dog is lost?
