Calgary compliance

Calgary introduces rewards program in drive toward full compliance with pet licensing.

About 90% of city dogs are licensed out of 112,627 and 45% of cats out of 109,840.

Bruce said he wants to capture the remaining few per cent of pooches that are not licensed.

“If we have 100% compliance we could probably get 100% return to owners and no animal would end up being killed just because we’re not able to locate their homes,” he said.

More than 200 dogs were put down in the city last year because Animal Services couldn’t locate their owners, but that number is significantly lower than most North American cities where euthanizing thousands of animals annually is the norm.
