Book today to keep your pet safe and healthy


Vaughan Animal Services (VAS) is dedicated to creating a safe community for pets and their owners – which includes offering microchipping services and rabies vaccines. On Sunday, April 23, you’re invited to bring your pets to a microchip and rabies clinic at the Vaughan Animal Shelter (located at 70 Tigi Crt., Unit 47) from noon to 6 p.m. Call the City of Vaughan at 905-832-2281 to book an appointment. Walk-ins will not be accepted.


The following services will be available at the clinic:

  • Microchip implant and registration ($25 per pet plus tax)
  • A rabies vaccine, certificate and tag ($20 per pet plus tax)
  • A City of Vaughan 2023 pet licence ($25 per pet)


Having your pet microchipped helps to easily identify and safely reunite you with them if they are lost. Getting your pet vaccinated against rabies helps with medical follow-ups for people or animals potentially exposed to infected animals and supplements and manages the costs of sheltering animals and providing education, outreach and compliance measures.


As a reminder, all City facilities are cashless. Everyone is welcome to attend, you do not need to live in Vaughan.


Aren’t able to attend? You can get a pet licence online! To start, you’ll need the login information, which can be found on your pet licence renewal letter. You can also contact the City at 905-832-2281 to obtain a login. If this is your first time registering for a pet licence, you can create an account directly online.


All dogs and cats in Vaughan must wear a licence (numbered tag), purchased from the City, at all times. Licences are not transferrable.


Dog and cat licences expire annually and must be renewed prior to the purchase anniversary date to ensure your pet’s information is kept up to date. Existing registered owners will be notified at renewal time.
