Pet Licences

The Town of Carstairs is pleased to announce that our animal tags are PERMANENT. This means that once you pick up an animal tag for your cat or dog the license is valid for the life of the pet. These tags are non-transferable. Please see below for more information:

  1. The tag must be placed on the animals collar and it must be worn by your pet at all times.
  2. This tag will belong to the pet it is assigned to for the life of the pet.
  3. It is the responsibility of the pet owner to advise the Town of Carstairs of any changes such as updated phone number, address, status of the pet, etc.
  4. The replacement of an animal tag will be $10.00 and can be purchased at the Town Office.
  5. All pets that are over the age of three (3) months need to be licensed as per the Town of Carstairs Bylaws.

Permanent Tag - FREE
