Emergency and Other Supports
Why get your dog licensed? Aside from it being the law, if your dog were ever to get lost or go missing, having him/her licensed will increase your chances of getting them back home safely. Tags help people quickly identify your pooch. The license fees also help support the care and adoption of lost and unclaimed dogs and the fees are typically quite inexpensive. Licensed dogs in Strathcona County will also be returned free of charge to their owners, if lost (once per license year).
