Pet owners: it’s time to renew your licences
The City of Saint-Lambert is reminding cat and dog owners that they must renew their pets’ licences, as they will expire on September 30.
According to the municipal by-laws in effect, licences are mandatory and must be worn by pets at all times. It is important to remember that a licence helps to quickly identify the owner of a lost pet and ensure the speedy return of the animal to its home.
Licences are now available, at a cost of $16 for a cat and $27 for a dog, at City Hall, 55 Argyle Avenue.
Owners are also invited to contact the City of Saint-Lambert if they move or if their pet has died so that their file can be brought up to date.
Dog run access cards
Access cards, which are mandatory for the dog run, will expire on September 30. To renew your card, simply come to City Hall with a valid licence and proof of residency.
A few important by-laws
Owning a dog involves respecting certain by-laws, including the following:
- Dog owners must “stoop and scoop” and properly dispose of their dog’s waste to maintain a sanitary, quality environment;
- Dogs must be kept on a leash not exceeding 2 metres;
- Dogs are not allowed in parks or public spaces or on sports fields, unless the signs indicate otherwise.
