Dog Tag License

The Township's Dog Licensing and Regulation By-law regulates the keeping of dogs. Residents are required to license their dog (s) over six (6) months of age annually.  The Township mails dog tags with an invoice to dog owners in January based on information gathered in previous years. Payment can be made in person at Town Hall or by mail with a cheque until March 31st, all outstanding licensing fees will be transferred to the final tax bill. If you no longer own a dog or your dog is deceased, please advise us accordingly in order to update our files and avoid renewal notices.

Residents can register a new dog through one of the following convenient avenues:

1.  In person at Town Hall: Visit Town Hall at 2 Mille Roches Road in Long Sault open Monday - Friday 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM and complete the Application for Dog Licence  and pay in person via cash, cheque or debit.

2. By Mail: Complete the Dog Licensing Application and mail it with a cheque for the total amount owing (see fee schedule below) payable to the Township of South Stormont to Town Hall, PO Box 84, Long Sault. Once we receive the application along with the payment, your tag(s) will be mailed to you.

3. By Email: Completed Dog Licensing Application can be sent by email to Shelby Martel. Once approved, your dog tag (s) will be mailed to you and the fee will be added to your property taxes.
