The City of Victoria is now giving dog owners the chance to renew dog licences online.
Anyone wanting to do so can go to the website, victoria.ca/payments, enter the account number from the dog licence renewal notice or search using an address. Dog licences can also be renewed at City Hall, the Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre, Victoria Animal Control Services, the SPCA and 12 local businesses.
Dog owners that renew on or before Feb. 29 will save $20 and be entered into a draw to win the first dog tag of the year.
The cost for a dog licence on or before Feb. 29 is $30 for neutered or spayed dogs and $40 for unaltered dogs. In 2015, there were 6,500 dogs licenced in Victoria.
