Winnipeg’s Animal Services Agency is raising the awareness of dog licensing in the city by holding a two-day event to educate dog owners.

The agency has teamed up with Winnipeg Lost Dog Alert to highlight licensing on Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5.

Events include a licensing special with an offer of a micro-chip for $10, volunteer drive to learn about dog-walking and animal socializing opportunities, and an in-house dog sale for $99, which include a license, micro-chip, spay/neuter, basic shots, food and pet health insurance.

Dogs over six months of age must have and wear a dog license. The cost is $30 for a sterilized dog and $65 for an unsterilized dog.

The public can visit 1057 Logan Avenue between noon and 5:30 p.m. on Friday and noon and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday.
