If you own a dog in the Township of Russell, you must ensure that your dog wears a dog tag.
Every owner of a dog shall annually, no later than March 31st in each year or within 7 days of becoming a dog owner, cause the dog to be licensed with the municipality. The owner shall keep the dog tag securely affixed on the dog at all times.
Dogs must wear a current dog tag to use the Dog Park.
Licensing registers your dog and provides a means by which it can be identified and returned to you if it gets lost. Licensing also addresses public health and safety concerns associated with stray animals.
Dog licenses may be obtained or renewed at the municipal office, at the Village Veterinary Clinic, located at 1108 Concession Street in Russell or by mail by completing and returning this Dog Tag Application.
