This summer, the City of Sarnia will be undertaking a dog census for the purpose of ensuring dogs are licenced.

During the dog census, residents will see by-law enforcement staff going door-to-door, seeking information relating to licencing of dogs. The fine for an unlicensed dog is $150.

Dog owners in the City of Sarnia are required to licence their dogs, over the age of 6 months, annually. In the event that a dog goes missing, a licence helps dogs get back to their owners.

2018 dog licence fees are as follows:

  Late Fee (after March 31)
Altered dog (spayed or neutered) $62.00  
Unaltered dog (not spayed or neutered) $110.00
