Loose dogs remain a concern in the community


The Kahnawà:ke Animal Protection Department of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke would like to remind the community that the number of loose dogs in the community is rising and remains a cause for concern.

As mating season begins, dogs are more likely to roam and can often become more aggressive when seeking a mate. Spaying or neutering your dog may help reduce roaming and aggression by preventing the dog from going into heat (spaying) and lessen its need to roam or become more aggressive (neutering).

In accordance with the Animal Control Law, all loose dogs that are picked up by Animal Protection will be released upon payment of the following boarding fees:

  • $45 – first offence;
  • $55 – second offence;
  • $65 – third offence; and
  • $15 per night.
After the fourth offence, the animal will be considered surrendered and brought to the SPCA. The fee to re-adopt a pet from the SPCA is $370.

Pet owners are urged to ensure that their dogs are not running loose by having them securely tied, indoors or fenced in. To report a loose dog, call 514-232-3307 until 11pm seven days a week.

For more information concerning spaying and neutering, contact the Animal Protection office at 450-632-0635.
