Municipal Services Municipal Law Enforcement (By-Law) Dog Licensing
Text Size:   A  A  A
The Municipality of French River requires that all 
dog owners annually register, describe and licence any dog(s) which have attained at least six (6) months of age which in their care or possession. Having your dog properly licensed is beneficial for both the Municipality and the pet owner.
 
When a dog is properly licensed it will aid the authorities in quickly identifying an animal for return to its owner when it is lost and/or found wandering the streets of our community by either the By-Law Enforcement Officer or concerned citizens.
 
The Municipality understands that from time to time, pets do inadvertently get out of their owners’ yard by various means. This can be dangerous for both the pet and innocent bystanders. The dog tag identification allows for quick and safe return of the animal.
