District of Invermere Notice to All Dog Owners

 In Animal Control, Community

With the weather now warming up, we would like to remind you that dogs are not permitted at Kinsmen Beach.

If you are in any public area that dogs are permitted we would like to remind you to keep your pets on a leash. Fines for dogs at large is $50.00.

We ask that you please remember to be respectful and pick up any dog feces. Please place any of your animal waste in a plastic bag prior to placing in your garbage container.

For dog control issues within the municipality, please contact our Dog Control Officer at 250-342-1707.

As we now know, plastic is not so fantastic. Up to a trillion plastic bags per year are used around the world. While most of them go to landfill sites where, scientists estimate, takes up to 1,000 years to break down, millions still end up in waterways, trees, and in our oceans where it eventually ends up in stomachs of fish and birds. We encourage you to use biodegradable dog waste bags, which are available at various sites throughout town.
