Tay Township requires proof of rabies vaccination to issue a dog licence.
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 comes into contact with the saliva from a rabid wild animal.
Dog licences can be purchased in person at the Township office with a rabies vaccination certificate.
They can also be purchased by mail by filling out the application and submitting it along with proof of rabies vaccination to 450 Park Street, Victoria Harbour, ON L0K 2A0.
Tay Township has a limit of two dogs permitted per household.
Licensed Kennels are exempted from this rule.
Care Animal and Pest Control has been contracted by the Township to provide pound keeper services effective May 1, 2018.
The pound keeper is responsible for housing stray and lost dogs found in Tay by By-law Officers and residents until they are claimed by their owner.
