Pet Tip of the Month:    

Sadie Winter 2022   Mags winter coat   Pip - Winter

So many times puppies are Christmas gifts, by the time February/March rolls around most have been vaccinated and are old enough to join an obedience class.  When a puppy gets well socialized, and has leash and obedience training, the chances of injury, dog fights, and bite incidents are reduced, which means that your chances of being eligible for a fine under the City of Timmins Dog/Cat By-Law are reduced as well.  So register today, for a better tomorrow!

For our cat lovers out there, we'd like to give a little reminder that although snow and ice might be great for skiing and snowmobiling, this is not great weather for cats to be let out in.  These animals are small and will lose body heat in a very short period of time.  It only makes sense that if you are tucked in warm in your house, your pets should be too.  


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.
