Dogs over the age of four months are required to be licenced. A dog licence is a pet's best bet for a safe return if they escape or become lost, as Animal Control Officers make every reasonable effort to return licensed dogs to their rightful owners. You can buy a licence at the City Hall Service Centre, the local SPCA, and at most pet stores in Prince George.
