Yes. All dogs in the Town of Ingersoll must be licensed and wear the tag, even if you are simply looking after the dog. Failure to purchase or failure to renew the license can result in penalties (increased license fee, a ticket or court action). You may keep a maximum of 2 dogs (8 weeks of age or older) in a dwelling unit or on any premise. License costs vary and depend on whether you have had your pet neutered or spayed.

Licenses are valid for the calendar year and expire on the 31st day of December in the year for which it was issued. Licenses are available by mail or in person from the Municipal Office. At the time of purchase you may be asked to produce a rabies certificate showing a current vaccination within the last year and a neuter or spay certificate if the dog has been altered. A replacement tag for lost or damaged tag(s) is available for purchase. A Dog License (tag) is identification and will assist animal control staff in returning your dog should it ever become separated from you.

  • Non neutered/spayed cost $25.00 per year
  • Neutered/spayed animals cost $20.00 per year
  • Tag replacement cost $5.00
