As per By-Law 2010-10, all dog owners are required to purchase a dog tag and to affix the tag to their dog.
Registered 2016 dog owners will be invoiced $15.00 to keep your current dog registration; which will be due prior to March 1, 2017. New tags are not distributed as the tags from 2010 have no date and a longer life expectancy. Replacement tags for lost or damaged tags may be purchased for $2.00. Dog owners who have not registered his/her dog are responsible for purchasing a dog tag. This licenses and registers the dog with the Township of Huron-Kinloss and enables the Animal Control Officer to return a dog home found straying at large.
If you do not have a dog tag you can purchase one at the following locations:
Country Depot 315 Hamilton Lane, Kincardine
Lucknow Travel 603 Campbell Street, Lucknow
Township Office 21 Queen Street, Ripley
Dog tags are on sale now for a cost of $15.00 until March 1, 2017. At which time, tags will increase to $25.00.
There is a $100.00 fine for not purchasing a dog tag or failure to attach a dog tag. The Animal Control Officer will be canvassing certain areas of the Township of Huron-Kinloss to ensure all dogs have been registered.
