Pet Licenses

The Town of Innisfail Bylaw #1537 states that the owner of every dog & cat in the Town must be registered annually. A tag will be issued and must be affixed to a collar worn by the animal at all times when the animal is not on the owner’s premises. Failure to comply with any of these bylaws could result in the seizure of the cat, and/or the issuance of a fine.

A dog licence can be purchased from the Town Office, under the following guidelines:

December & January – $20.00 for a spayed/neutered dog; $40.00 for a non-spayed/non-neutered dog
February – November – $30.00 for a spayed/neutered dog; $50.00 for a non-spayed, non-neutered dog

Cats residing within the Town of Innisfail are required to be licensed, under the following guidelines:
