The City of Markham's Animal Control By-law requires that domestic pets be licensed, including cats and dogs. You need a licence even if your pet has a microchip implant. A licence helps to identify your pet if it gets lost.

When you buy a dog or cat licence, your pet will get a Free Ride Home if it is found by the OSPCA.

If your pets don’t have licences, you could be fined.

To make it easy for residents to license their pets and to ensure excellent customer service, licensing process can be completed online.
