City of Revelstoke Bylaw Officers will be out and about patrolling the streets and green belts; they will be educating the public on the City's Animal Control Bylaw No. 2183. Officers will be informing residents about off-leash areas, at large animals, barking dogs, and the fines that are associated with such tickets.
Did you know? No owner shall cause or permit his or her dog to be at large in the City unless in a designated off leash area.
Did you know? Allowing your dog to continuously bark is against City Bylaws?
Did you know? It is your responsibility to ensure your animals do not chase, harass, or approach another human or domestic animal.
Did you know? It's your responsibility as a pet owner to pick up after your animals, even if we wish they could pick up after themselves sometimes...
6.10 No Owner shall permit his or her Dog to deposit excrement on public or private property, other than the property of the Owner, unless the Owner immediately removes the excrement and disposes of it in a sanitary manner.
6.11 Every Owner shall in a timely manner remove and dispose any excrement left by any Dog on the property of the Owner.
With the winter months coming, people tend to not pick up their animals waste. This causes a very unpleasant spring time cleanup situation. If everyone picks up their animal's waste when it is created the clean up effort in the spring is reduced for everyone. Bonus: no one tracks animal waste into the home or work place!
