License your pet! - Licenses are very useful. They help reunite a lost pet with their owner. Licenses are mandatory on dogs of the City of Barrie and Springwater. They are available for Cats in the City of Barrie but not mandatory. Springwater currently does not license cats. Licenses for the City of Barrie are for the LIFETIME of your pet. Springwater are yearly.
Shelters across Ontario receive thousands of stray animals each year, and many do not have identification. Identification (including microchipping) is the best way to ensure that your lost pet can be reunited with your family!
Please contact your municipality to ask about Licensing your pet.
