Dog Control Program
For the safety of everyone.
Stray and loose dogs can become aggressive and have the potential of seriously injuring community members, especially children and elders. The Moose Factory Dog Control Program was established to prevent dog-related injuries.
We remind dog owners to keep their pets inside or kept outside in a fenced yard or with a tie out.
- Stray and loose dogs are collected and housed at the dog pound, located at the former Public Works garage.
- Owners have 48 hours to contact the Dog Control Program and sign a form agreeing to pay the capture fee within 5 weeks.
- Dog will be returned to owner once the capture fee is paid.
Capture fee starts at $100 and increases by $100 for every two weeks that the dog is housed at the dog pound.
- Week 1: $100
- Week 3: $200
- Week 5: $300
Capture fees can be paid at the Moose Cree First Nation finance office.
- If contact is not made by the owner within 48 hours of capture, the dog will be put up for adoption.
- If owners do not pay the capture fee within a 5 week period, the dog will be put up for adoption.
Is my dog at the pound?
Photos of dogs currently housed at the pound will be posted on the Moose Factory Dog Control Program Facebook page. If you not see your dog listed, you can send us a message on Facebook or through the other contact methods provided below.
Dogs are provided with food, water, and outdoor time while housed at the dog pound. Capture fees help to cover the costs of operating the program.
