Animal management

Dogs

The City has rules to keep it safe and clean, in particular:
  • It is prohibited to keep more than two dogs OR cats in the same housing unit.
  • The owner of a dog or a cat that gives birth must give away the puppies or kittens within 60 days following the birth to avoid exceeding the maximum number of pets permitted per housing unit.
  • Keep your pet on a leash (max. 2 m) at all times.
  • Dispose of pet feces quickly and properly.
  • Respect the signage in areas where pets are prohibited, especially parks and children’s playgrounds, where pets must be kept at a distance of more than 2 m.
  • Possess a valid licence tag that is affixed to your dog’s collar at all times.
  • Ensure that your pet does not disturb the peace in the neighbourhood either by barking, making foul odours or damaging your neighbours’ property.
By following these simple rules, you will contribute to making our neighbourhoods and municipal parks pleasant for everyone. In addition, you will also avoid being fined.

Dangerous or stray animal

Any animal, which is dangerous, a stray or a nuisance, found in the City, whether or not it has a licence, which is not kept on a leash, may be captured and put in a shelter, as determined by the City Council.
 
Dangerous animal: Any animal which tries to bite or attack, or which does bite or attack, or that threatens the safety of a person or an animal and which has been declared dangerous by an expert, working on the City’s behalf.

Stray animal: Any animal not on a leash, which is not accompanied by a person able to control it, and which is not on its owner’s land.

Cats

In urban areas, cats roaming free outdoors can be a nuisance and affect our citizens’ quality of life. To maintain a good neighbourhood, it is important to do the following:
  • Make sure your pet does not go onto a neighbour’s property without permission.
  • Ensure that your cat does not disturb neighbours’ peace and quiet, whether it is by meowing, moaning or hissing. 
  • Even though it is not mandatory for cats, a tag with the owner’s contact information is highly recommended.
