Dogs Running At Large
By-Law 23 of 2011 prohibits dog owners from failing to keep their dogs from running at large. To report dogs running at large, please contact the Municipal Office or Dog Control Officer.
Dogs found to be running at large may be seized by the Animal Control Officer or his/her authorized agent and shall be impounded by the Pound Keeper and remain at the pound for a period of seventy-two (72) hours.
Persons redeeming dogs which have been impounded must pay the Treasurer of the Municipality a Redemption fee of $20.00 for each dog for the first offence and a Redemption Fee of $40.00 for each dog for each future offence in addition to Pound Fees and the provision of any Official Receipt of the Municipality by the Owner to the Pound Keeper shall be the Pound Keeper’s authority to release the dog.
