The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) manages dog licencing and animal control for the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.
All dogs four months or older must have a current licence (fees apply). The fine for owning an unlicenced dog is $200.
Existing licence holders will receive a Renewal Invoice by the end of December, which provides payment instructions. The licence fee must be paid annually. It is valid only for the calendar year in which it's paid, and it expires December 31 of that year. The dog tag is permanent and will not be replaced each year. Renewals can also be purchased online or in person at the Village office.
A 25% penalty fee will apply to payments received after December 31.
