Pet licensing brings pets home and helps to fund some shelter programs

 Pet licenses are more than just a tag around pet’s neck, they are their ticket home if they are lost. Fees collected from licenses help many of the other animals who come into the shelter. Every week Animal Services takes in an average of 70 stray pets and 17 of those are returned to their owners the same day through the drive home program. In fact because of pet licensing, Calgary has the highest return to owner and lowest euthanization rates in North America. Beyond reuniting pets with their owners, licences help to fund emergency vet care for stray dogs and cats, no cost spay/neuter programs for eligible Calgarians and so much more.
