Recently there has been a significant increase in dogs and cats at large in Langham and/or have been turned in at town office. Town staff is currently spending a concerning amount of time administering these cases.
The Town of Langham wishes to remind its residents of the Dog and Cat Bylaw, 2009 in effect, specifically:
Note - Subject to Schedule B of the Dog and Cat Bylaw, 2009 if your cat or dog is brought to the town office you will be subject to fines including the purchase of a license (if the animal is unlicensed). Other fines shall include a one time $50 pound fee and may include additional fines before the animal will be released including an additional $15 for every additional day your animal is being held.
Owners of animals found running at large, causing a nuisance, or damaging private property
will also be subject to additional fines related to subsequent activity (Schedule C).
