You can save a good amount of money in Fort Saskatchewan, even if your dog isn't neutered or spayed.
Unaltered dogs in the Fort are $35 to register and license for the year, drastically cheaper than surrounding areas such as Morinville ($100), Edmonton ($76), Strathcona County ($70) and Gibbons ($60).
"In Fort Saskatchewan, we believe that a key step in being a responsible pet owner is licensing your animal," said City of Fort Saskatchewan municipal enforcement supervisor, Matt Lowther. "It's only $15 (neutered) for owners that are 65 years of age or older and unaltered is $25 for those 65 years or older."
Neutered or spayed dogs in the Fort are $25 per year, still over $10 cheaper than licenses in Edmonton and other surrounding communities.
Redwater is by far the cheapest in the heartland with an annual price of $10 for neutered or spayed dogs and $20 for unaltered.
"We have 1471 animals that have been licensed this year, but this number is down," added Lowther. "For people who forget or fail to license their dog, they could potentially get a fine for $150 or more."
