Licensing & Bylaws

Licensing your pet is their ticket home if they ever get lost.

There are many other benefits to licensing your pet. Your license dollars go towards sheltering lost pets in a safe environment until they can be reunited with their owners, educating the public about responsible pet ownership, helping neighbors resolve animal related conflicts, and provides medical care to adoptable animals in need including no-cost spay/neuter for low-income owners. 

Below are links to Calgary and Area Animal Services and their applicable Animal Bylaws.
