All dogs must be registered with the Municipality of Arran-Elderslie. A dog tag must be affixed to the dog's collar at all times. If you get a new dog please come into the Municipal Office to register your dog and to purchase a tag for a fee. If your dog is already registered with us, commencing January 2017 you received an invoice and a permanent dog tag in the mail. In 2018 and going forward, you will receive an invoice only. Should you require a replacement tag, they are available at the municipal office(see fees below).
It is your responsibility to notify the office if there is any change to your pet's information, you are moving out of the Municipality or you no longer have a dog.
It is against the Animal Control By-law to allow your dog to run freely off your property unless the owner of the property has given you permission.
You are able to pay for your dog tags through your on-line banking. Please search Arran-Elderslie > GENERAL. Your account number is on your invoice. If your having trouble setting your account up, it could be that your specific banking institution may require additional digits. Please add additional zeros to the FRONT of your account number for the system to accept it. Please DO NOT pay to Tax or Water & Sewer accounts.
(Please also note anyone using ROYAL BANK will not have access to online payments as there is no GENERAL account available).
Licenses for kennels will only be issued for those kennels located on property which comply with the Comprehensive Zoning By-laws for the Corporation.
