Whistler Licences & ByLaws:
The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) requires all dog owners to comply with the Whistler By-Laws regarding responsible dog ownership and licensing. Please visit their website for more information.
Licenses purchased at WAG during January 2023 will have 100% of the proceeds donated to the animal shelter. Licenses purchased at WAG from Feb 1st 2023 will have 50% of the proceeds donated to the animal shelter.
Licences can also be purchased at Municipal Hall and renewed online.
WAG and the RMOW:
The Regional Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) provides the building that Whistler Animals Galore currently occupies, as well as funding grants. In exchange, WAG provides animal bylaw services for the municipality, which includes taking care of impounded dogs, identifying owners and contacting them, recording the input and release of the animal, and taking payment.
WAG and the RMOW are separate identities. WAG does not control the Whistler by-laws - our staff is there to give your pet love while they stay safe at WAG. Please remember to treat us with respect when you come to claim your animal, and all comments or complaints can be made to Whistler By-Law at 604-935-8280.
WAG staff does not have the power to change or reduce impound or license fees.
Please follow the Whistler By-laws! Keep your dog on a leash on municipal property and make sure all your pets have proper ID so they can be immediately identified if found.
