Registering your pet helps us ensure pets in the City of Thompson are up to date with their rabies vaccinations, and it helps us return pets who have gotten loose directly to their owners.

Animals Running Loose
We know that accidents happen and pets get loose sometimes. If your pet is registered, and you report that your pet is missing as soon as possible, our Animal Control Officer can help you find your pet, and we won't penalize you. All that we ask is residents demonstrate an earnest effort to find and retrieve their pet.
We will fine pet owners who show a consistent pattern of losing their dogs and not taking proactive steps to find them.
If you want to report a pet running at large, send an email to email@example.com
It's a common conception that cats are outdoor animals. However, stray cats have a real impact on urban ecology, and the average lifespan of outdoor cats is less than a third of indoor cats. "Outdoor cats" are considered animals at large just like dogs: if you want your cat to spend time outside, they should wear a harness like a dog, or be contained to a well-built cat-io.
Sometimes stray cats become a nuisance. Animal Control doesn't usually trap animals, but we can lend you a trap for a refundable deposit. Please remember that if you trap an animal, you are responsible for its well-being until it is delivered to the humane society.
