Security and Animal Control

Hamlet and Community Security and Animal Control

Reminder: dogs must be kept on their owner’s property by tying up or fencing.  Stray dogs will be impounded and owners charged $40.00 per day in pound fees before the dog is released. After 72 hours, dogs are adopted out to SCARS (Second Chance Animal Rescure Society)

Get your dog back more quickly!  A dog tag means we can call you if your dog is found.  Registration and tags are free at the MD Main Office at 2077 Mistassiniy Rd. N., Mon-Fri 8:15 am to 4:30 pm.  Don’t forget to call us at 780-891-3778 with an update if your phone number changes.

Animal Control stores animals in kennels that are set up at our landfill and transfer sites

  • Animal Control Officers work to maintain the kennels and keep the animals fed while they wait to be reclaimed, transferred to rescue, or adopted.
  • If interested in adopting an animal please contact Second Chance Animal Rescue Society (SCARS), a non-profit animal rescue group that finds homes for many of the MD's unclaimed dogs--go to:
