Pilot Butte has a Dog and Cat Control Bylaw which requires owners to purchase a license for pets. The license is $20 for neutered pets and $40 for those not neutered; the license being for the lifetime of the pet and not being transferrable to another pet or owner.
Dogs and cats are to be contained on the owner’s property. It is against the law to have pets running free outside of your own property. This means that you cannot open the front door and allow your pet out to defecate in the neighbourhood at will. When walking your dog, please have him on a leash and be prepared to pick up droppings. Please also collect droppings on a daily basis in your own yard, particularly in the hot weather, so as not to interfere with your neighbour’s enjoyment of their back yard.
Barking dogs disrupt the peace of the neighbourhood. If your dog is new to Town and is left outside while you are away during the day, you may not be aware that he barks non-stop. Please try to ensure that your right to have your dogs outside on your own property does not infringe on your neighbours right to a peaceful existence.
Pet License forms are available in person at the Town Office or online through this form.
Once you have registered your pet, you will have to come down in person to collect your tags. The tag holds a number only and does not reference either you or your dog by name, phone number or address.
