Get out of Pound Free Program

Licensed pets that are spayed or neutered are automatically included in the Get out of Pound Free program. The first time a pet is found at large, it will be granted:

  • one free ride home with no charge being filed against the owner and/or
  • one waiver of pound fees if the pet is impounded and picked up by the owner within 24 hours.

Note that this program applies only to the first time an animal is found at large and only once within that animal's lifetime. Fines will be issued for any future offenses.

Fees for animal control violations have increased. See the Animal Control Violations on the Animal/Pest Control page.

For more information, please see the Responsible Pet Ownership Bylaw or view the Bylaw Enforcement page.
