Dog Tag Licence Application Form

Any mailed in forms must include valid rabies certificate and payment.

It is a Provincial requirement that dogs and cats over three months old are vaccinated for rabies. Vaccinations will not only protect your pets from acquiring rabies but will also help protect you and your family if your pet is bitten by a rabid wild animal.

Tay Township has a two-dog limit.

For more information regarding canine control, contact the Tay Township By-law Department at 705-534-7248 x248.
