You will now be rewarded for licencing your pet in Hamilton


Published August 5, 2021 at 2:42 pm


Registering your pet or renewing an existing license is one of the more tedious and costly yearly chores that Hamilton pet owners would like to avoid. Especially if you live in a multi-pet household. 

However, Ren’s Pets is making things a lot less painless.

At no extra cost to the City, the Ontario-based pet store chain is providing $20 gift cards for each pet registered or renewed (up to four per household).

“Partnerships like this with Ren’s Pets help generate additional non-tax levy related revenue streams,” said Brian MacDonald, Manager, Strategic Partnerships. 

“The Strategic Partnerships team helps to develop relationships with the private sector to generate these revenues and are always looking to partner with companies in our community. Thank you, Ren’s Pets, for your partnership with Hamilton Animal Services’ licensing program.”

The gift cards can be used at any of the 33 Ren’s Pets across Canada.

Pet owners can purchase or renew their licence online at or by calling 905-574-3433.

“Proper and efficient identification of pets is a core method for protecting their welfare and that’s why we strongly encourage all pet owners in Hamilton to license their pet with Hamilton Animal Services,” said Monica Ciriello, Director of Licensing and By-law Services. “In the event of an emergency, the ability to contact a pet’s owner is crucial and could save its life.”

The City of Hamilton says it renews over 40,000 pet licences each year.
