Did you know that…
Registering your pet is a municipal bylaw?
The regulations of many municipalities in the Townships  state that any pet owner must register him or her at the Eastern Townships SPA.
The registration is valid from January 1st until December 31st of each year?
Every year, you must renew your pet’s registration through the notice sent to you by mail by the Eastern Townships SPA. A
new ID tag is not sent with this notice; you use the same tag year after year. Should your pet loose his
ID tag or the number on it has erased over time, call the Eastern Townships SPA at 819-821-4727, option 4. A new ID tag will be mailed to you.
You must pay the registration renewal before February 15th 2019?
The municipal bylaw states that administration fees are added to payments made after this date. Also, according to this municipal
bylaw, failure to comply may result in a fine of no less than $50.
You are entitled to a $10 rebate if your pet is spayed or neutered?
If your pet has been spayed or neutered over the past year, include a proof of sterilization (provided by a veterinary doctor) with your
payment or sent it to the Eastern Townships SPA by fax at 819-823-1573. You will then benefit from a $10 rebate on the regular fee for your pet’s registration.
You no Longer Have a Pet?
If you no longer have a pet, contact the Eastern Townships SPA at 819-821-4727 (option 4), so its
personnel can update your file.
You Have A New Four-Legged Friend? You Have Moved?
If you recently have a new pet at home or have moved, according to the municipal bylaw you must
register him or her within 15 days after his or her arrival or after moving into your new home. To do
so, you have three options:
Contact the Eastern Townships SPA at 819-821-4727 (option 4) Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.;
Visit the Eastern Townships SPA shelter, Monday through Saturday between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.;
Fill out the registration form available at under the button
Registering your pet (on the right-hand side of the screen), under the section
Registering a pet and obtaining an ID tag and send it back to the Eastern Townships SPA. Do not pay this registration immediately; you will receive an
invoice shortly.
