Security and Animal Control

Hamlet and Community Security and Animal Control

Reminder: dogs must be kept on their owner’s property by tying up or fencing.  Stray dogs will be impounded and owners charged $20 per day in pound fees before the dog is released. Unclaimed dogs may be adopted out to someone else after just three days.

Get your dog back more quickly!  A dog tag means we can call you if your dog is found.  Registration and tags are free at the MD Main Office at 2077 Mistassiniy Rd. N., Mon-Fri 8:15 am to 4:30 pm.  Don’t forget to call us at 780-891-3778 with an update if your phone number changes.

Kennel and Animal management

  • Animal Control stores animals in kennels that are set up at our landfill and transfer sites.
  • Animal Control Officers, landfill attendants, and volunteers work together to maintain the kennels and keep the animals fed while they wait to be reclaimed, transferred to rescue, or adopted.
  • If interested in adopting an animal please contact the Animal Control Officer for your area.  You could also contact Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS), a non-profit animal rescue group that finds homes for many of the MD's unclaimed dogs--go to:   www.scarscare.org.
