Bylaw Services Weekly Update April 3-9, 2017: The Benefits of Pet Licensing

(Fort McMurray, AB – March 31, 2017) – Bylaw Services reminds all pet owners within the RMWB to register their animals this April. 

There are many great benefits to licensing pets. Should your pet ever get lost, or in the event of an emergency, a registered pet is easily identifiable and will be returned to you as quickly as possible, at no cost. 
Purchasing your pet license helps us determine more accurate pet population numbers, used to identify our region’s needs for animal recreational, health, and emergency response services. 

Visit for more information and to download the application to register your pets today!
