Pet tags for 2021 in Stratford are now on sale.

Officials say all dogs and cats in Stratford are required to wear a registration tag at all times, which allows the Humane Society to return the pet to if it’s found wandering.

They say the first time your pet is found wandering by the Humane Society, your pet receives a free ride home.

The fees for pet tags are as follows:
• Dog/Cat- sterilized: Before March 1 – $20 / As of March 1 – $30
• Dog/Cat – not sterilized: Before March 1 – $50 / As of March 1 – $60
• Dog or Cat under 1 yr.: $20.00 any time
• Special Needs Dog – No charge; registration required
Seniors (age 65 or older) receive a discount on annual identification tags. New residents to Stratford may exchange their current identification tag from another municipality at no cost for a current City of Stratford tag (one time only).
Identification tags may be obtained at:
• Stratford-Perth Humane Society – 125 Griffith Road, 519-273-6600
