Animal Control

All dogs and cats within the Municipality are required to be registered.  There is no fee to register dogs and cats. You may register your pet at the Altona or Plum Coulee offices.  We would like all pets to be registered so if they go missing we can contact the owner avoiding the fees of animal control.

If required to do so, the Animal Control Officer will seize and impound the dog. Fines are stated in the applicable area by-laws.  The minimum impound fee is $100.00 plus daily kennel fees.  
Please note: all dogs over the age of 4 months must be registered with the Municipality.
