Pets and Your Community

Every pet owner has a responsibility for his own pet and a responsibility to his neighbour.

Please DO

  • Help keep our parks free of pet pollution. Clean up after your dog in parks and on any public property.
  • Buy a dog license annually and attach it to the pet's collar.
  • Obtain a good book on pet care.
  • Have your dog or cat spayed or neutered.
    • Many thousands of dogs and cats are euthanized every year because there are no homes for them.

Please DO NOT

  • Let your pet use private property for a toilet.
  • Let your dog run loose. It is illegal and dangerous.
  • Let your pet be a nuisance to others, with noise or destruction.
  • Leave your pet in a hot closed car.
  • Disturb wild birds or free animals in their natural areas.
