Dog Licenses & Tags
Every dog in the Municipality of Colchester must be licensed and wear a dog tag. Having a licence helps your dog be brought home sooner when they are lost or loose. Licenses are good for one year, from January to December.
Each tag is $12.00 and can be purchased from any of the following:
- The By-law Enforcement Officer
- Community Development Department, County Office
- Pilot's Doggy Daycare, Salmon River
