IMPOUNDED CATS AND/OR DOGS:

BYLAW 2012/08 DOES ALLOW FOR THE ENTRAPMENT AND IMPOUNDMENT OF CATS. TO ENSURE YOUR CAT IS RETURNED SAFELY IF CAPTURED, PLEASE HAVE YOUR CAT VOLUNTARILY REGISTERED AT THE ADMINISTRATION OFFICE FOR A FEE.
Use caution in approaching or handling any stray cat as it may carry diseases, and it may bite. If you know the owner of the animal, we suggest you speak to the owner about your free-roaming pet concerns. You can also use deterrents such as motion-sensor water sprayers to keep free-roaming cats off your property. For further information, please see our animal bylaw.
Please note: regulations must be followed when using cat traps. Any incorrect usage that causes harm to an animal may result in charges under Animal Protection Legislation.
