Dog Licences

The Township of Malahide provides Dog Control Services in accordance with By-law No. 05-71.  The Township of Malahide requires all dogs to be licenced. Licences must be purchased each year as per the Dog Licencing By-law. 

Why Licence your Dog

  • If your dog goes missing, having your dog licenced drastically improves your chance of getting them back safely.
  • A licence is immediately visible to anyone who finds your pet and shows that your pet belongs to someone.
  • Your dog is returned to its home faster and spends less time in the shelter.
  • If your dog is loose or involved in an emergency situation, the licence provides information needed to contact you.
  • It is a requirement to licence your dog.  If you do not, you are in contravention of the By-law.

How to Licence your Dog

The Township of Malahide dog licences are valid for one calendar year. If you are registered in our system, dog licences can be picked up at the Township Office beginning on the first Monday in November for the upcoming year. If you do not pick up your dog licence, it will be mailed to you by the middle of January.

If you are a new dog owner, you can complete a registration form and submit it with payment and a dog licence will be provided to you.
