The City of Thompson requires that all dogs and cats owned in Thompson be licensed and are wearing a city tag.
What is required to get a license?
In order to apply for a dog/cat license, you must provide a certificate showing that your pet is up to date with its rabies vaccinations.
Dogs/Cats over the age of four months must be licensed.
If your pet isn’t old enough to be spayed/neutered, you can still receive the lower cost of licensing your pet. You will need to provide a receipt from a veterinary clinic that you have prepaid for your pet to be spayed/neutered, and then you will be entitled to the lower cost of licensing your pet.
Benefits to licensing your animal:
If your dog/cat goes missing, having them licensed drastically improves your chances of getting them back. A license tag helps animal control quickly identify your pet and get him back to you safely.
Licensing lets people know that your pet is up to date on its rabies vaccinations. A dog/cat cannot be licensed unless it is properly vaccinated. Animal control or a good Samaritan will be much more likely to want to handle and care for your missing pet if they know that it is vaccinated.
The cost of the license is far less than the penalty for being caught without one. If a City Official finds your pet without a license, the owner shall be liable to a fine as specified in the City of Thompson Fee and Fine Schedule as it exists.
