How do I get a dog license?
The Municipality requires that your dog is licensed every year. Having a tag on your dog’s collar will enable the By-law Enforcement Officer to quickly return your pet to you if he or she gets loose or lost. A license is good for one year, from January to December, and costs $12.00. You can purchase a license from the Municipal Office, 15 Commerce Court, Elmsdale, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday to Friday. You may also complete the Registration form and mail it to 230-15 Commerce Court, Elmsdale, NS, B2S 3K5 with your payment. Your tag will be sent to you in the mail.
If a dog is found without a tag and we are unable to locate the owner, the dog is kept in the Municipality’s kennel for three days. If, after three days, the owner is not found, the dog is turned over to the local SPCA for adoption.
