The By-Law Department provides animal care and control services including the issuance of dog licences (for dogs aged 16 weeks and over) and ensures that pet owners are made aware of what controls are in place when violations occur. Licensing registers your dog and provides a means by which it can be identified and returned to you if it gets lost. Licensing also addresses public health and safety concerns associated with stray animals.
How many animals are permitted?
A maximum of 3 dogs, or 3 cats, or a combination of 4 of these animals (with the exception for farming operations, kennels or pet shops) is allowed per premise within the Township of Champlain.
