The Town of Tecumseh will be conducting a door-to-door canvass for dog tags to ensure that all dog owners have registered their dog(s).

Fees for the tags go directly to off set the cost of the dog catcher, dog pound and maintenance of the Town’s dog park.

“This door-to-door canvass was quite successful in 2018 with approximately 500 new tags purchased,” said Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh. “All dogs in Town must have a tag as it helps us to protect not only our dog owners but also other residents and dogs should their dog get loose.”

The Town’s Dog Licensing By-Law requires the owner of every dog to obtain a licence and tag for each dog owned. A person who violates any provision of the By-Law is guilty of an offence and upon conviction, shall forfeit and pay a fine not to exceed the maximum permitted under the Provincial Offences Act.

The Town has retained the services of Commissionaires Ottawa who will begin canvassing May 28th to June 29th during the day, evening and weekend hours. The Commissionaires will be wearing a uniform and have identification.

Dog Owners will be asked to complete the 2019 Dog Licence Renewal Application (Application), and provide payment of the $35.00 fee. Cash, debit or cheques made payable to the Town of Tecumseh, are acceptable payment forms.

The Application is available at http://www.tecumseh.ca/news/dog-tag-and-licencing-enforcement.
