Now time to re­new cat and dog li­censes

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS -

It’s time to re­new your cat or dog’s li­cense if you live in a mu­nic­i­pal­ity served by the SPA de l’es­trie. The dead­line is Fe­bru­ary 15th.

The SPA takes in more than 7000 cats and dogs each year. Of those, about 50% are uniden­ti­fied and are never re­united with their own­ers. 99% of those an­i­mals found wear­ing their li­cense medal­lions are soon back in their homes.

To buy a li­cense medal­lion for your pet call 819 821-4727, op­tion 4, or fill in a form on the SPA Es­trie web­site. The cost is $30 for cats and $40 for dogs. If the an­i­mals have been neutered, there is a $10 dis­count. The money from the sale of the li­censes is used to help feed and care for more than 7000 an­i­mals, to neuter and adopt out more than 2000 from that num­ber, to res­cue wounded an­i­mals or those in dis­tress 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to of­fer pa­trol and in­spec­tion ser­vices to 225,000 Town­ship­pers, and to respond to roughly 15,000 re­quests from cit­i­zens.
