Have you just moved into Malahide??  If you have a current dog tag issued by another Municipality, please bring the tag into our office and we will exchange it free of charge for a Township of Malahide Dog Tag.

The Township of Malahide has implementing a new dog tag licencing e-commerce application. Effecive immediately the Township will no longer be selling dog tags on a door-to-door basis.  It is now the Dog Owners responsibility to obtain their dog tag.

If you are a landowner, and by authorizing the Township to do so, the Township will automatically send out your 2007 and 2008 dog tag.  The $15.00 payment will automatically be placed on your 2007 and 2008 interim tax bill.  If you move from the Township or if you no longer have a dog, please contact the Township Office and we will stop the process.  In 2009 new notices will be sent out for the next 3 year period.

Tenants or new dog owners will need to obtain their tags annually

All questions with regard to this should be directed to the Clerk, R. Millard at 773-5344.
