Animal Control

Pet Tip of the Month:    

Riggs - spring

Roses will soon be blooming, and love is already in the air ... not only for people but also for dogs, cats, and all other mammals in our area.  If you're not a breeder, please spay or neuter your pet to prevent unwanted pregnancies.  Shelters are full enough.  

If you are a breeder within the City of Timmins, make sure you have  a kennel club affiliation, a City of Timmins Business Licence, and are also zoned for your type of business.  This cuts down on indiscriminate breeding, and puppy mills as well as helping to maintain a good quality of dog who is healthy and limits unwanted, uncared for pets.   

Off-Leash Areas

Want to let your dog have a bit of fun running, and exploring?   The City of Timmins has two great off-leash areas for your  pet to enjoy:

Rainbow Loop at Hershey Conservation Area

Dog Park off Mattagami Blvd.   

I has been noted around the city that unauthorized signage has been posted in areas other than the two mentioned above.   Please be advised, that on all other trails within the Corporation of the City of Timmins - other than the Rainbow Loop and the dog park - your pet must be leashedReceiving a by-law infraction ticket would be costly reminder, if one of our enforcement officers meets you and your pet on the trails.

Dog and Cat Licences

If you have a dog, that could mean a lot of trail walking, playing at the dog park and evening strolls.   Don't let getting caught without a city dog tag put a damper on your fun.  

Residents  are reminded that as a responsible pet owner, you are required to have your cat/dog licenced - City of Timmins By-Law 2021-8593 Licencing, Registration, Regulation and Control of Cats and Dogs

All tags - for both dogs (eight weeks old and up) and cats - expire  December 31st, of each calendar year.  2023 tags are available at PADS K9's office, located at 190 Third Ave between the hours of 9:00am to 4:30pm, Monday to Friday.

Alternate locations authorized to sell City of Timmins pet licences are:  Timmins Animal Hospital, and Spoiled Rotten.   For convenience, licences can also be purchased from the animal control officer when they are out on-duty, with either a debit or visa.                           

Regular patrols will be made of our local parks and trails as they look forward to working with the public in keeping our community safe, not only for our residents, but for our four-legged friends also.
