Dog Licences

Program information

Dog owners in Electoral Area C and Ranchero can purchase a dog licence using the CSRD's online dog licensing program.  The online program makes it easier for dog owners to obtain a licence.  CSRD Dog Licenses are like an insurance policy for your pet. Purchasing a dog licence is one of the best things you can do to ensure your pet is returned to you if it is lost. The licence identifies ownership information so the animal control officer can quickly return your pet to its family.

Owners can now choose the type of licence they wish to purchase for their dog.  An Annual Dog Licence can be purchased each year and is valid from January 1 to December 31 in the year of purchase. An Annual Renewable Licence can be purchased for a $50 one-time fee and it will renew automatically for the lifetime of your dog. Owners are responsible to notify the CSRD when the ownership information for that dog changes. 

Currently, every dog (over the age of four months) who resides within Ranchero or Electoral Area C must be licensed. Licences are issued by the CSRD and must be purchased before January 31 in each calendar year or once a dog reaches the age of four months.
