Purchase or Renew Online!
Pet licenses are valid for one year from the date of purchase and must be renewed annually. There is a base $250 fine for not licensing a dog or cat over 4 months old. Microchips are not licenses, however they can be tied to a valid pet license.
Reminder letters are sent one month prior to the license expiring. For renewals, you will need the following information provided on your Pet License Renewal notice:

Pet license purchases and renewals can also be made in person at City Hall, the Saskatoon Animal Control Agency, the SPCA or any participating pet license vendors.

Subsidized Spay & Neuter Program
This program helps low income families in Saskatoon to spay and neuter their cats and dogs.
The Subsidized Spay and Neuter Program is an initiative of the City of Saskatoon, the Saskatoon Academy of Veterinary Practitioners and the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, who have joined forces to address the issue of numerous unwanted cats and dogs in Saskatoon. This issue arises from the unspayed and unneutered cats and dogs living in our community. Significantly discounted veterinary services and financial resources are being provided to assist low income pet owners who could not otherwise afford to have their pets spayed or neutered. This program is reviewed annually.
A very appreciative “Thank You” is extended to the Saskatoon SPCA, SCAT Street Cat Rescue and New Hope Dog Rescue for their assistance in helping to develop this program.
