It is Council's responsibility to ensure that animals, mainly dogs, are not a nuisance to the community. Dog registration is a legal requirement and the fees fund the dog control operation. This includes answering complaints about dogs, monitoring rubbish days, attending dog attacks, educating school and community groups to encourage responsible dog ownership and caring for the animals in the pound.
Should you wish to know more about the Animal Control Programme please contact one of the Animal Control Officers.
The Dog Control Bylaw was reviewed in 2014. The update bylaw and maps of restricted and dog walking areas are linked below.
