Lake Country and North Westside dog owners will be receiving their annual renewal notice.

Owners have until Feb. 29 to renew their dog licence for 2016, and starting March 1, all renewals are subject to an additional $20 late charge and owners could be faced with a $300 fine for not having a valid licence.

“It’s easier than ever to keep a dog licence current. We encourage dog owners to go online anytime at regionaldistrict.com/doglicense and safely and securely pay for their 2016 licence,” said Bruce Smith, Regional District of Central Okanagan communications officer.

“Just look for the account number and access code on the renewal notice, log in and complete the payment transaction.”

Renewals can also be done at the regional district office and the Lake Country municipal office.

The licence fee is $20 for a dog that’s spayed or neutered and $60 for those not.
