Licensing your dogs and cats

City Hall in the Snow 

Under the municipal Animal Control By-law, all dogs and cats in Brampton must be licensed with the City each calendar year.

You might be saying “but my dog never leaves my side – he’ll never go missing!” Or “I have an indoor cat – how can she go missing if she never goes outside?”

We’ve heard it all before. No one expects their pet to go missing, but it only takes a moment for that well well-trained dog to get spooked and run, or for that indoor cat to slip outside.

Accidents happen, and licensing is the best way to ensure that lost pets get home safely.

Plus, we’ve introduced a new rewards program – it’s called the BluePaw program, and we’ve partnered with local businesses to offer special discounts to responsible pet owners who license their pets.
