As part of its effort to address the issue of pet overpopulation, the City of Kitchener has implemented higher licencing fees for non-sterilized dogs. Before a licence for a sterilized dog is issued, the owner shall submit a copy of their certificate of sterilization; or the owner shall otherwise satisfy the Poundkeeper that their dog is sterilized.

To keep our records up to date, please contact our office (519) 745-5615 if you no longer own or have a dog. If your dog has passed away, please contact us and accept our condolences.

Please be considerate of others; city parks and greenbelt areas are not meant to be a playground and litter box for your dog. A dog shall be deemed to be running at large when it is found not under the effective control of an adult and not on a leash. As well, every owner of a dog shall remove immediately and dispose of any excrement left by the dog on any property in the city, other than the owner’s property. Please obey the by-laws so that everyone can enjoy the parks and greenbelt areas. Be a responsible pet owner. Thank you for your cooperation.
