What are my responsibilities as a pet owner?

Pet owners are respected to adhere to the following responsibilities:

  • All pets MUST be leashed within the boundaries of the City of Lacombe, except in the off-leash area located on Len Thompson Drive and on animal owner’s private property. Pets are not allowed in areas containing playground equipment.
  • All dogs and cats within city boundaries must be licensed.
  • Cats must remain on the property of their owner. Pet owners who allow their cat to roam can receive fines starting at $150.
  • Pick up after your pet. The City receives many complaints from park and trail system users regarding people not ’scooping poop’ after their pets defecate. Failure to pickup after your pet will result in a fine of $100.
