Animal Control

Has your dog got a Town of Oliver dog licence?

Dog Licensing and Control

All dogs within the Town of Oliver must be licensed. The basic fee for an annual Town of Oliver dog license is $25.00 ($30.00 after the due date).  A dog license provides peace of mind that your dog can be returned to you if it is found. If your dog is picked up by the Bylaw Officer, having a license will reduce the first impoundment fee and will avoid costly ticket fines.

Licenses may be purchased at the Town hall. A maximum of two dogs may be licensed on any property within the Town of Oliver.

Dogs are not permitted to run at large. When in public areas, dogs must be on a leash at all times. Dog handlers must clean up after their pets and must be in possession of bags or a scoop for this purpose, whenever walking a dog off the owner’s property. 

Municipal handling fees for dogs are defined in Animal Control Bylaw 1224 and are listed below:

In addition to above the fees, municipal tickets may be issued for too many dogs, dogs at large, unsecured dogs, failing to clean up after your dog, etc.

For a full description of animal regulations including times and locations where dogs are prohibited and where dogs may be allowed to go “off-leash”, please refer to Animal Control Bylaw 1224.

Please call the Town office at 250-485-6200 ext. 245 and leave a message for the Bylaw Officer if you think your dog may have been picked up and impounded.
