We have received numerous complaints about Cats At Large. Both Dogs and Cats require Annual License Tags through the Town of Bashaw!! (First offence for failing to license is $75.00).
Keep your pets on a leash or in a fenced-in yard when outdoors and do not let them wander the neighborhood or get out of your sight (First offence for pets running at large is $80.00).
Pick up after your pet right away. It is the Law! No one wants to step in or smell that “gift” your pet left behind. If you are not willing to be responsible for your pet as is required in any community, you should not own one (First Offence for failing to pick up after
your pet is $100.00).
We have Animal Control officers enforcing our Animal Control Bylaws.
In accordance with our Bylaws, fines will be issued to offenders.
