Riverview Town Hall

It is our responsibility to provide a safe community for our citizens and their pets. Licensing plays an important role in our ability to fulfill this responsibility. A licence allows animal control to identify your pet, get in touch with you, and make decisions that are in the best interest of your pet should it become lost or injured.

If you own a dog or cat in the Town of Riverview, you are required to hold a valid pet licence. The owner of an unlicensed pet can be fined up to $50.00.

You can license your pet online, over the phone, by mail, or in person.

Pet licensing in Riverview is managed by DocuPet Inc. Visit their website at riverview.docupet.com to license your pet and learn more about their Lost Pet System and local DocuPet Rewards Program that are included with your pet licence.

  • $15 for a neutered or spayed cat or dog
  • $30 for a cat or dog that has not been neutered or spayed

To apply for a licence, pet owners must present a valid rabies certificate. Only indoor cats, defined as a cat that never leaves the confines of its owner's residence, are exempt from the rabies certificate requirement.

Please note that Riverview's licensing program operates on a 365 day cycle. This means that all licences expire the following year on the date they were purchased.
