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.
Citizens are encouraged to connect their pets' microchip information to their pet license through the online pet licensing process or through contacting Customer Service at 306-975-2400.
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 Saskatoon SPCA or any participating pet license vendors.
