COQUITLAM, B.C., Jan. 5, 2022 – Dog owners in the City of Coquitlam are reminded that 2021 dog licences expired on Dec. 31 and the discount period to renew is underway. 

A dog licence is a valuable tool to help protect your pet by providing an easy-to-identify dog tag and registration with the Coquitlam Animal Shelter. If your dog gets out or is lost, the fastest way to be reunited with your family is to make sure it is validly licenced and wearing a licence tag on its collar.

Purchase or renew before Feb. 1 and receive a discounted rate. Proof of spay or neuter is required to receive a further discounted rate. 

Fees

  • Spayed or neutered dogs until Feb. 1: $28
  • Spayed or neutered dogs after Feb. 1: $45
  • Non-spayed or non-neutered dogs until Feb. 1: $57
  • Non-spayed or non-neutered dogs after Feb. 1: $74

Get Your Renewal Online

If you haven’t already, you will receive your renewal notice in the mail. Go green and sign up to receive your renewal notice via email in the future at www.coquitlam.ca/dogs.

Ways to Pay

There are several ways to pay your dog licence renewal: 

  • Save time and pay online at www.coquitlam.ca/dogs.
  • Mail a cheque, payable to “City of Coquitlam”, to the Coquitlam Animal Shelter (500 Mariner Way, V3B 7N2) or Coquitlam City Hall (3000 Guildford Way, V3K 7B6). 
  • Pay in person during business hours at Coquitlam Animal Shelter (500 Mariner Way) or Coquitlam City Hall (3000 Guildford Way).

Dog licence fees help fund the Coquitlam Animal Shelter which houses stray, abandoned and injured animals while staff work to find forever homes for them. Fees also help pay for animal control and regulatory services associated with pet ownership.

All dogs over the age of six months are required to be licenced each year with the City of Coquitlam. Bylaw Enforcement Notice fines may be issued if your dog is found to be unlicenced.

About the Coquitlam Animal Shelter 

Located at 500 Mariner Way, the Coquitlam Animal Shelter provides safe shelter to stray dogs, cats and other small animals. Annual dog licence fees help support the animals at the shelter. Unclaimed pets receive medical care, vaccinations, an identifying tattoo or microchip, and are spayed or neutered before being available for adoption. The shelter also provides a private dog boarding facility offering a safe and reliable home away from home where quality care is a priority. Learn more at www.coquitlam.ca/animalshelter.
