The Town of Redwater is encouraging residents to license their furry family members.
"Everybody's dog gets out every once in a while and if they have their tag and they're wearing their tag, we know who it belongs to," said Deb Hamilton, CAO of Redwater. "We take that information, who that owner is, a description of the dog and of course, contact information."
Neutered males or spayed females are $10 to license while those who haven't been spayed or neutered are $20.
"We have lifetime tags so you only are required to get a tag once, you pay a bit more but it's good for the life of the dog, they're non-transferable."
A lifetime license tag is $40 for spayed or neutered dogs and $80 for those who haven't.
For those who don't register before February 1, they'll face a fine of $50.
