Pet Licences

All dogs and cats owned within the City of North Battleford must be licenced and wearing a tag issued by the City. When your pet is licenced and has a collar tag with contact info, it is a lot easier for Community Safety Officers (CSOs) to bring your pet home when it is lost.

You must license your pet at the start of each year.
