Register, Renew or Replace Your Dog and Cat Licences Online

Jan 18, 2016

The City of Greater Sudbury’s online dog and cat registration form at offers a fast and easy way to purchase pet tags. Under municipal by-law, all dogs and cats older than eight weeks must be licensed in the City of Greater Sudbury. The fine for having an unlicensed dog or cat is $125 per pet.

Pet licensing fees are used to reunite lost dogs and cats with their families, provide food, shelter and care for lost pets, support the adoption of unclaimed pets, and help resolve nuisance animal complaints.

The registration fee for a spayed or neutered dog or cat is $15 per year. Older adults age 55 years and over also pay $15 per pet. The regular registration fee is $30 per pet. A $10 late charge applies to all fees after January 31. There is no late charge for new pets licensed within seven days of adoption and there is no charge for service animals.

Citizens without access to a computer may purchase dog and cat licences at any branch of the Greater Sudbury Public Library, at the Rainbow District Animal Control and Shelter Services, and at participating pet stores and veterinary clinics.

Residents are reminded of a four pet limit in the City of Greater Sudbury that permits a maximum of two dogs per household. Exceptions apply to working farms and may be extended under certain circumstances.
