     b)   Every owner of a dog or cat shall, no later than January 31 in each year, and
          upon payment of the prescribed fee, obtain a licence for the said dog or cat,
          with failure to do so constituting an offence under this Bylaw. Such licence
          shall not be transferable to any other dog or cat.

     c)   When applying for a licence, the applicant shall provide a description of the dog
          or cat, the name and address of the owner or the keeper of the dog or cat, the
          breed of the dog or cat and any other relevant information that may be

          has recently moved to the City or that his dog or cat has recently been
          purchased or that his dog or cat has recently reached the age of three months,
          shall not be subject to any penalty for late registration of the dog or cat.
          However the onus of proof as to the exact date when the owner became the
          owner of the dog or cat shall be on the owner.

     f)   A person who owns and physically relies on a guide dog trained and used to
          assist such person shall obtain a licence for the dog, however, the licence shall
          be issued without requesting payment of the prescribed licence fee.

     g)   When applying for a licence, the applicant shall provide a certificate of a

          presented proof that he has in effect liability insurance in the prescribed
          amount to cover any damage or injury caused by the dog.
Bylaw No. 1888                                                                          4

          animals prior to the passing of this Bylaw must make application to Council for
          approval in order to maintain that number of animals exceeding the maximum.

     k)   After the passing of this Bylaw, if an owner desires to have more than the

          $25.00 as the licence fee for all dogs in such kennel. Such licence shall cover
          all the registered dogs comprising such kennel for the year in which such fee is
          paid. Provided, however, that in applying for a licence for such kennel, the
          person making the application must produce a certificate from the keeper of the
          register of any such club, or a certified extract from such register showing that
          all dogs composing such kennel have been registered.

             i) commercial breeding purposes; or
             ii) boarding on a commercial basis;

          provided that such harbourage or keeping of cats does not, in the opinion of

          keeping of cats for any of the purposes described in subsection 5(b) constitutes
          a nuisance in every case.

6.   a)   When a licence is issued for a dog or cat, the applicant shall be provided with a

          day of January to the 31st day of December of the year for which the licence is
          issued.

     c)   The owner of a dog or cat shall ensure that the dog or cat wears a collar to

          presentation by the owner of a receipt showing payment of the licence fee for
          the current licence year and upon payment of the duplicate tag replacement
          fee.

7.   a)   Where a person becomes an owner of a dog or cat after the 31st day of
          January in any year, he shall immediately thereafter cause such dog or cat to

     b)   If a dog or cat is found to be at large, the owner shall be deemed to have
          permitted the dog or cat to be at large unless the owner proves to the

          reasonable to prevent the dog or cat from being at large.

     c)   No owner of an animal shall permit his animal on any public playground, park

      f)   Any owner of a dog who fails to immediately restrain and remove the dog upon

    in the records made when the licence was purchased at the address shown therein,
    that unless the said animal is claimed and the fees, as provided for in this Bylaw,

    reason, has applied to the Animal Control Officer to obtain the said dog or cat out of
    the pound before it has been sold or disposed of, as provided for in this Bylaw, no

31. A dog which is restrained on private property by means other than an approved dog
    run, shall be restrained in the following manner:

    a) The restraint shall be of sufficient strength and kept in a state of repair so that
       the dog will not be able to escape.
Bylaw No. 1888                                                                          11

       lane.

    d) Prevent the entry of children of tender years.


Rabies and Other Diseases

32. a)   Any animal suspected of having rabies shall not, where reasonably possible,
         be killed but shall be secured and isolated for ten days and the matter

         Battleford and the District Veterinarian, whose instructions shall be complied
         with.

         infectious disease, the Medical Health Officer is authorized to order that no
         owner shall suffer or permit his dog or cat to be on any place beyond or outside

         leash or under property control until such order is revoked.

    c)   The Medical Health Officer may order the compulsory inoculation of any dog or
         cat.

    d)   An owner of a cat or dog who neglects or refuses to comply with any order of
         the Medical Health Officer made under the provisions of this Section shall be
         guilty of a breach of this Bylaw.

     b)   The ticket shall be in a form similar to that provided in Schedule “C” of this

     c)   Upon production of the ticket issued pursuant to Subsection (a) within seven
          days from the date of service, together with payment indicated on the ticket to

          be subject to further court action.

    trapped cat unharmed.
•   I will not allow harm to come to any trapped cat while in my possession including
    exposure to inclement weather.
•   I will not use the cat trap when the temperature falls below 0°C or rises above +30°C.

•   I will pay the cost to repair or replace the cat trap if the cat trap is damaged, lost or
