Animal Services

Animal control is a municipal responsibility and is governed by municipal bylaw. However, control of dangerous animals is governed by legislation.

Help keep pets safe and with the family that loves them.

Lost or Found Pets
If your pet has gone missing, please call the Town Office during regular business hours at 780-324-3065.

BE A GOOD NEIGHBOR: AT HOME AND ON THE LAKESHORE. This includes using methods to control dogs barking, scooping the poop and not allowing your pet to run free when out on walks or at home.

Animal License Fee

The Town of McLennan governs that no household shall have more than three animals, of which a maximum of two animals can be dogs.  All dog owners within the town are required to purchase a permanent tag for their dog(s). Any dog or cat over six months old must be licensed.


When licensing your pet, the office will require:

  • a current picture
  • a brief description
  • name and contact information of owner
  • fee to be paid


Type of License Cost
Permanent Dog License – Un-neutered $40.00
Permanent Dog License – Neutered $25.00
Permanent Cat License $20.00
Replacement of Lost License Tag $10.00


If pets are not licensed, we have no means of identifying the owners. Any animal with no license is then available for adoption.
