New App Makes Dog Licence Renewal Quick and Easy

From Regional District of Central Okanagan

January 5, 2017


It’s easier for dog owners in the Central Okanagan to save when they purchase or renew their dog licence for 2017.  And renewing can be quicker than ever!


That’s thanks to the ‘My Dog Matters’ App created for the Regional District of Central Okanagan.  The App is believed to be the first developed for local governments in Canada and brings the opportunity to renew a dog licence right to an owner’s mobile device.


Any dog owner with a current licence who has provided their email address has received a welcome email that provides information on how they can download the ‘My Dog Matters’ App for free at the Google and iTunes app stores.  They can also go online with their favourite web browser and download the App.


Approximately 19,000 dog owners in the Central Okanagan have licensed their pet and are now able to access the free App—that’s over 23,000 dogs that are licensed in the Central Okanagan.


Not only does it allow them to renew their licence for 2017, but the App also contains their digital ‘My Dog Matters’ Reward Program card. Showing it at more than 50 participating businesses gives dog owners special discounts and services. Those with the new App can easily check participating retailer’s offers.


Of course, dog licences can be renewed or new ones purchased anytime online at www.regionaldistrict.com. Dog owners may also renew in person at the RDCO office in Kelowna, the Regional Dog Pound (890 Weddell Place), at any local government office (including City of West Kelowna Municipal Hall at 2760 Cameron Road) or the Kelowna branch of the SPCA.


February 28 is the last day for renewals and new purchases at the discounted rate of $20 for a dog that’s spayed or neutered and $60 if it isn’t.  Starting March 1, owners renewing or purchasing a new licence pay the regular fee of $40 for dogs that are spayed/neutered and $80 if not.


There’s plenty of information available about dog licensing and responsible dog ownership in the Central Okanagan.  Check out regionaldistrict.com/dogs for information about the Regional Dog Service and what to do if you lose or find a dog.
