Animal Control

For any concerns about an animal, please call the Municipal Office at 204-343-2061.


Dogs must be vaccinated and licensed. The license fee of $50.00 is good for the lifetime of the dog. Dogs are not allowed to run at large; to bark or howl habitually; to defecate on public or private property other than its owners; and must remain on the owners’ premises unless leashed and under the immediate charge and effective control of a person competent to control it. The Animal Control By-law authorizes the capture of dogs found running at large, and dogs found to be vicious or creating a nuisance, and includes the applicable fees, fines, and costs.


CATS must also have a current rabies vaccination. Cats are not required to be licensed, however, licensing is recommended in order to identify a pet versus a stray. No household shall harbour more than 2 cats.
