Animal Services

The Township of Black River-Matheson is a pet friendly community and is committed to the well-being of our pets and our community. You are required to purchase an animal licence if you own a dog within the Township.

Residents are permitted to keep up to three (3) dogs on their premises, unless the property is zoned to permit a Licensed Kennel.

Licensing your pet is not only the law, but it can play a critical role in identifying your pet, should it become lost or injured. The municipal dog by-law ensures that all dogs have been given their vaccination, which means a healthier and safer environment for you and your pets. The number on the dog tag licence will assist someone in returning your lost dog.

Matheson residents are reminded that every dog must be licensed annually. The 2022 licences are available at the Township Office. You will be required to provide proof of vaccination and sterilization, so be sure to bring these documents with you.

More information animal services can be found at the Town office and the Municipal Compliance Officer.
