Owning a Pet in Mississauga Just Got Cheaper
Published June 5, 2018 at 2:46 pm
If you’re a pet owner in Mississauga, you may be pleased to hear about a recent change in purchasing pet licences.
The city has announced that as of June 1, residents can now purchase a two-year pet licence online (and at a discounted price compared to the one-year licence).
The cost to license a dog or cat is $45 for one year and $80 for two years. If your pet is spayed/neutered, the price drops to $20 for one year and $30 for two years.
Additionally, residents over the age of 65 will receive a considerable discount on their pet licences as well.
Pet licences are required by law and act as your pet’s identification, containing vital information that can help Animal Services return them to your home in the event that they get lost.
Licences must be renewed each year on the anniversary of purchase, and owners of unlicensed pets may be subjected to a $100 fine.
Pet licence fees go towards the care and feeding of homeless pets, returning lost pets to their homes, and veterinary services as well as other animal-related causes.
If you’re not fond of online purchases, licences will still be available by mail, phone, or in person at the shelter or local community centre.
Residents can learn more and purchase their licences by visiting the city’s website.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
