The Township of South Glengarry requires all dogs three months of age and older to have a licence.

A dog licence enables the Animal Control Officer or Pound Keeper to return your missing dog to you as soon as possible. It also tells strangers your lost dog is not a stray and needs to be returned to its family.


The fee for a dog licence is $15 for the first dog and $25 for each additional dog. Cheque or cash payments are accepted.

How to Obtain or Renew a Licence

Licences can be purchased at the following retail locations. You may also obtain your annual licence by mailing in the required information with your payment to the Township office and a licence will be mailed back to you. Once the Township Office is able to reopen licenses can be picked up there.
