Pet Tip of the Month:   November

Rain, sleet, mud and more rain, mud sleet - that's usual for November fare.  Enjoyable for most dogs, not so much for their owners.    Rain, sleet and mud can cause hazardous road conditions.  Remember, driver's are not always on the look out for your dog while they are driving. Drivers can react poorly, causing collisions, when they see a loose dog. 

Keep your dog leashed and think about using reflective coats, collars or leashes.  It could stop a car accident, or even worse, injury to your pet.

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.                  

 

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.  

All tags - for both dogs (eight weeks old and up) and cats - expire  December 31st, so be sure to get your new 2023 one now.   

2023 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.
