Purchasing or renewing a license

The Responsible Pet Ownership By-law requires that all dogs and cats over the age of six months be licensed.

City of Winnipeg dog and cat licenses must be renewed annually (bi-annually for 2 year licenses). An invoice is emailed or sent to the address we have on file one month prior to the license expiring; however, it remains the pet owner's responsibility to ensure their pet has a current license. Failure to purchase or renew your pet's license can result in legal proceedings.

Dangerous dog licenses are mandatory for all dogs designated as dangerous and all dogs used primarily to guard property.

There are 4 ways to purchase or renew your dog or cat license: online, phone, in-person or mail.

Please note: Pet licenses are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Frequently asked questions

Cancelling a license

Transferring a license

Pet licenses are not transferable between pets, but the Responsible Pet Ownership By-law allows a change of ownership of a pet license during the license year. The new owner may have the current license number transferred to his or her name.

We require both the new and current owner's signatures to process a transfer of ownership. Please complete the transfer of ownership form and either email it to 311 or drop it off at the Animal Services Agency, 1057 Logan Avenue.
