Calling all pets: Iqaluit holds animal registration tag drive
Owners encouraged to register dogs, cats at Iqaluit Curling Rink on Sunday
Pet owners in Iqaluit are being encouraged to bring their dogs and cats to an animal registration tag drive Sunday afternoon.
From 1 to 6 p.m., residents can bring their pets to the Iqaluit Curling Rink to register them with the Iqaluit Municipal Enforcement Department at no charge.
“Registering pets with the city enables animals to be safety returned to their owners when found,” said chief enforcement officer Rod Mugford, in a release.
At the same time, he said, RainCoast Dog Rescue Society will be providing a complimentary vaccination clinic for those who otherwise cannot afford vaccines for their pets, or do not have a way to get their pets out to NunaVet.
This should be a thing in all communities. Would love to see less dogs loose around town. Bullets and bludgeons are a temporary solution to the eternal problem of fecunding creatures. One day it will be realized.
