Did you know that …
Pet licensing is a municipal by-law?
Regulation in various municipalities of the Eastern Townships requires that all pet owners register their pets with the SPA de l’Estrie.
Pet licenses are valid from January 1 to December 31 of each year?
Pet owners are required to renew their pet licenses on a yearly basis upon receipt of the notice sent by mail from the SPA de l’Estrie. The notice does not include a new tag; the same tag is used year after year. However, if a tag is lost or the number on it has faded, contact the SPA de l’Estrie, at 819 821-4727, option 4. A new tag will be sent in the mail.
License payments must be made at the latest by February 15, 2019?
Municipal regulation includes administrative costs for all payments made past the due date. Municipal regulation also includes a possible minimum fine of $50 for non-compliance with the said regulation.
You are eligible for a $10 rebate if your animal has been spayed or neutered?
If your pet has been spayed or neutered in the last year, include the form (from your veterinarian) with your payment or fax it to the SPA de l’Estrie at 819 823-1573. You will receive a $10 rebate on the regular price to license your pet.
You no longer have your pet?
If you no longer have your pet, contact the SPA de l’Estrie, at 819 821-4727, option 4; your file will be updated.
