Dog Licenses

Licensing your dog is important to help identify your dog should it become lost or injured. Dog tag collectors no longer go door to door issue new dog tags in Zorra. It is up to the pet owner to ensure that all dogs are registered with the Township.

Dog tags are $15.00 per dog, per year. The tags will be valid for three years (January 2019 to December 2021). Click here to apply for a new dog tag online.

If you own property in the Township, the annual dog license fee of $15.00 per dog will be itemized and added to the final tax bill sent out every August. Tenants will be invoiced annually for the licensing fee.

Lost dog tags will be replaced for a fee of $3.00. Please notify our office and the replacement tag will be mailed to you. 

If you find a lost or injured dog, contact the number on the tag to make arrangements for the dog's safe return. If you find a lost or injured dog after regular business hours, please contact Kismutt Small Dog Rescue at at 519-283-6585.

For reference, the Township's Animal Care and Control By-law is available on the By-law section of our website.

Kennel Licenses

Kennel Licenses are only issued at the municipal office and kennel operators must show proof of membership with the Canadian Kennel Club. Kennel licenses cost $100.00 per year and an annual site visit is required. Please contact the office to discuss regulations for kennel licenses at 519-485-2490.
