DOG LICENSES

Dog licenses are due for 2019.   

Whether you are a property owner, or a renter, if you own a dog, that dog must be licensed in Radium. Tags are $10 for altered dogs and $40 if they are not altered (spayed/neutered). If you no longer have a dog, then please let the office know so that we may update our records.

Also, please remember that in the Village, we have a bylaw that requires owners to pick up their dog's feces when it is deposited on public or private property. Apart from the bylaw, this is simply responsible behaviour that is respectful of others. Read more »
