A dog licence helps protect your pet by providing an easy-to-identify dog tag and registration with the Delta Community Animal Shelter.
In many cases, if your dog is wearing the licence the dog can be returned home instead of having to come to the shelter. If your pet is lost anywhere in the world, the fastest way to be reunited with your dog is through this dog tag and the licence!
Buy Yours Online
Whether you are new to Delta or renewing your dog's licence, we are encouraging all Delta dog owners to obtain their 2023 dog licence tags using the City of Delta’s online portal:
From there you can set up a new account or renew your dog licence. For renewals, you will need your dog licence account number, which can be obtained from your renewal notice. If you have misplaced your renewal form, have a new dog, or require updates to your account (address, moved, pet deceased, etc.) please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist accordingly.
For those without access to a computer or a Visa/MasterCard, there are other options available:
MAIL (by cheque only – do not mail cash):
Mail a cheque payable to "City of Delta" and the bottom portion of the renewal notice in an envelope to City of Delta, 4500 Clarence Taylor Crescent, Delta, BC V4K 3E2. Your tag(s) will be mailed to you.
DROP BOX (by cheque only – do not deposit cash):
Drop boxes are available 24 hours outside the entrance of City Hall (4500 Clarence Taylor Cres) and at the east entrance of the North Delta Recreation Centre (11415 84 Ave). Put a cheque payable to "City of Delta" and the bottom portion of this notice and in an envelope and drop in a drop box. Your tag(s) will be mailed to you.
