Reminder to Dog Owners not to Fur-get to fetch savings on 2024 licences

December 11th, 2023

Bark-gains are in store for dog owners in Grand Forks, Greenwood, Electoral areas C/Christina Lake, and D/Rural Grand Forks as the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) reminds residents to tag their four legged friends, for less.

From now until January 31, 2024, responsible pet parents have the chance to renew or purchase their 2024 dog licence at a reduced fee.

This limited-time offer ensures furry friends in the region are properly licensed and their carers get an extra pep in their step as they kick off the new year.

“Our goal is to make responsible pet ownership both rewarding and affordable,” said James Chandler, RDKB’s Deputy CAO and General Manager of Operations.

“By offering this early bird discount on dog licence’s, we’re not only encouraging compliance with our bylaws but also giving back to the community of pet lovers in Grand Forks and beyond.”

To score the savings, dial up the RDKB at 250-442-2708, make an in-person pounce at 2140 Central Ave or send an email to dogtags@rdkb.com.

And for those who like to fetch information in the digital realm, the RDKB website is the go-to resource for all the details: https://rdkb.com/Public-Safety/Animal-Control.

In order to expedite the process, dog owners are encouraged to provide the following information during their purchase or renewal:

  • Dog Name
  • Breed
  • Colour
  • Sex
  • Neuter/Spay Status
  • Address (Civic and Mailing)
  • current tag number (if applicable)

The 2024 discounted prices are: $15 for Neutered or Spayed Dogs, $25 for Intact Dogs and $100 for Kennel or Hobby Kennel Owners. Standard rates will apply from February 1, 2024.

According to the RDKB’s canine code (Bylaw No. 1550), all dogs older than four months must be licensed.

Greenwood residents, be sure to take a peek at Bylaw 1568 for additional tail-wagging regulations.
