Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time. Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, ensuring the rapid return of the lost pet. While tags may be lost from time to time, external identification such as these is still important as a quick "visual" means of identifying your pet.

The Spay/Neuter Clinic is a City-operated facility which provides
dog and cat sterilization services. Spaying or neutering pets reduces the number of unwanted domesticated animals and the cost of animal control. The Clinic is a revenue neutral service, meaning that fees are set to recover the cost of services without generating a loss or a profit. Fees for service are approved by City Council as necessary to maintain that objective.

Please join us for our bi-annual Clean-up Days that take place once in the spring and then later again in the fall.
Most dog owners are very good at cleaning up after their dogs,
but you wouldn't believe the number of Tim Horton's cups we collect on the clean-up days.
During the morning we hand out bags and gloves to dog owners.
RDOC would like to take this opportunity to thank all the
wonderful dog owners who help keep our parks clean.

Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind requires foster families for guide dog puppies in training
Guide Dogs for the Blind requires foster families to home
a guide dog puppy in training. These puppies must be
welcomed as a member of the family, learning basic
obedience and be introduced to a multitude of situations
that will aid them in eventually becoming working guide
dogs for the blind. Applicants must have a fenced
area for the dog and access to a vehicle, plus someone
must be home or with the puppy most of the
The foster family is responsible for training the dog obedience and socialization skills, working closely with a professional dog trainer from Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind. For the volunteer, itís much like having your own puppy, but you must add specific commands and rules which are geared towards this puppy becoming a guide dog. Itís a long-term commitment of twelve to eighteen months, having the puppy accompany you almost everywhere you go, and adapting to the knowledge that the dog must be given back to enter into formal training. A large part of the reward is the chance for the puppy you raised to graduate as a working guide dog, to provide an incredible gift to a visually impaired person, and to have the opportunity to meet the person that the guide dog is matched with.
Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind provides all food for the puppy and is responsible for all veterinary expenses. Information sessions are held on a regular basis. To attend one, contact Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind at (613) 692-7777.
Guide Dogs for the Blind has been providing professionally
trained guide dogs to visually impaired Canadians since
