Dog Licences - New in 2022!  Lifetime Dog Tag Licenses
The Township of Bonnechere Valley has changed to a lifetime dog tag license fee for $30.  The goal of dog licensing is to ensure the Animal Control Officer can return stray dogs to their owners and not take them to the pound.  Lifetime licenses will fulfill this goal without requiring staff time to update the dog license and owner data every year.  For dog owners, this means that the dog license you buy will remain in effect for the life of your dog.

The Township of Bonnechere Valley requires all dogs within the municipality to be licensed and to wear tags.  Failure to comply will result in a fine of $100 plus the purchase pice of the tag.  The Township of Bonnechere Valley has an animal shelter.

The Township of Bonnechere Valley does not have a By-law for the activity of cats
