When leaving a voicemail for the Animal Control/Bylaw Enforcement Officer, please remember to leave your name and contact information. All calls will be kept confidential, but anonymous calls cannot be dealt with. Thank you for your understanding.
Pets and Hot Weather
With the weather warming up, the Bylaw officer would like to remind people not to leave your pets in vehicles. Animals confined in an unventilated vehicle can quickly succumb to the high temperatures and die of heat stroke. Please leave your animals at home where they will be more comfortable. The MTI Bylaw No. 2540, Animal Control Schedule Section 10, allows for a $150 fine for animals left in an enclosed space unventilated vehicle. Let’s keep our dogs safe this summer!
