Purchase or Renew a Pet License

Pet licenses are valid for one year from the date of purchase and must be renewed annually. There is a base $250 fine for not licensing a dog or cat over 4 months old. Microchips are not licenses, however they can be tied to a valid pet license.

Reminder letters are sent one month prior to the license expiring. For renewals, you will need the following information provided on your Pet License Renewal notice:

  • Person ID Number
  • License Tag Number

Pet license purchases and renewals can also be made in person at City Hall, the Saskatoon Animal Control Agency, the SPCA or any participating pet license vendors.

Subsidized Spay & Neuter Program

*Please note:  The City of Saskatoon is no longer accepting SSNP Applications for 2017.  Applicants are encouraged to apply again January 2018. 

This program helps low income families in Saskatoon to spay and neuter their cats and dogs. 

The Subsidized Spay and Neuter Program is an initiative of the City of Saskatoon, the Saskatoon Academy of Veterinary Practitioners and the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, who have joined forces to address the issue of numerous unwanted cats and dogs in Saskatoon. This issue arises from the unspayed and unneutered cats and dogs living in our community. Significantly discounted veterinary services and financial resources are being provided to assist low income pet owners who could not otherwise afford to have their pets spayed or neutered. This program is reviewed annually.

The City is please to report that Subsidized Spay and Neuter Program has seen great success once again in 2017. The program has reached capacity for the third year in a row and we would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Saskatoon SPCA, SCAT Street Cat Rescue and New Hope Dog Rescue for their assistance in developing this program. New applications will be accepted starting in January 2018.

Please note:  The Subsidized Spay and Neuter Forms must be signed and stamped by the City of Saskatoon prior to booking any appointments at the veterinarian.  Veterinarians will NOT perform the surgeries until the forms are fully processed by the City of Saskatoon.  

If there are any questions about the program, please contact:
