Animal Control

Pet Tip of the Month - June

The nights are getting longer and everyone is staying out to visit friends, including your dog.  After a winter in the house though, your beloved four-legged furry friend may be not as social as they usually are.  This is a cry for help from your dog.  You may need to contact a trainer and work on your dog's social skills before something serious happens.  

If things escalate, there could be severe injuries to one or both dogs, or even an owner who tries to intervene.  Don't end up with fines, and a "Dangerous Dog Label", make your dog one of the crowd.  There's help out there, just a call away.

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.   

Recently it has come to our attention 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.

Maggie - 1 Winter

With so many weather advisements of extreme cold recently, please be sure to help your precious family pets, and be sure to always supervise any outdoor time they have.  Early warning signs that it's too cold for your pet, may include such things as holding up paws, shivering, or whining.   They are depending on us to  keep them safe, happy and healthy!

It's the beginning of a new year, and time to get a head start on the many adventures a new year brings!

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.

2022 tags are available at:  PADS K9 Protection and Detection Service, The Timmins Animal Hospital, Spoiled Rotten, or from one of our friendly animal control officers out on patrol.
