Responsible Pet Ownership – what does that mean for you?
- All dogs must be on-leash at all times, unless posted signs indicate otherwise, or on property where the owner of the dog has the right of occupation.
- Dogs may not be left unattended while tethered.
- Dogs may only be transported in the back of a truck if the dog is in a fully enclosed trailer, a truck bed covered with a topper, contained in a ventilated kennel that is secured to the truck bed, or securely tethered and not standing on bare metal.
- Dog owners must ensure that they bring along a suitable means to pick up feces.
- Dog owners must pick up all feces produced by their dog both on and off their property.
- Dogs must be under control in designated off-leash areas. This means they must be in sight of their owners and respond to sight or sound commands.
- Educating citizens about responsible pet ownership and enforcing the bylaw
- Housing, feeding and providing medical care for impounded cats and dogs in our vet-operated facility
- Managing our animal adoption program
- Helping neighbours resolve their animal related conflicts
- Providing funding to veterinary clinics for emergency medical care for injured stray cats and dogs
- Operating the No Cost Spay/Neuter program for the cats and dogs of eligible Calgarians.
Keep your pets safe by licensing them annually, and make sure your pet is under control and properly cleaned up after. Your pet, and your neighbours will thank you. Visit calgary.ca/animalservices for more.
