The City of Brandon announced on Monday morning the kickoff of a new online service that promises to make it easier for residents to license pets.
By visiting https://petlicense.brandon.ca, residents are now able to submit registration of their dog or cat online. In a press release this morning announcing the new service, it’s said that after registrations are submitted and processed an invoice is sent to the pet owner who would then have the option of either paying online by credit card or in person at City Hall.
The cost in 2020 to license a dog or cat is $20 if spayed or neutered and $56 otherwise. Licensing is done on an annual basis, with the City last year having licensed 630 animals.
As part of submitting a license application online, an option is included to register as part of the city’s pet owner search database which is used as part of re-uniting lost pets with owners.
As per city By-law, dogs and cats over six months of age must be licensed. The fine for being caught with an unlicensed animal is $100.
The offering is the latest traditional city service to be extended online, following in the footsteps of last year’s rollout of a web service that facilitates the online payment of parking tickets.
