Frequently Asked Questions About Lost and Found Dogs in LSAC

There have been many questions brought forward about lost and found dogs within Lac Ste. Anne County so we would like to help answer those by publishing this simple FAQ Sheet.

Our Enforcement Officers monitor all complaints lodged to the County. If a complaint is received by an Officer of a dog or dogs roaming or causing a nuisance, the Officers will respond. If you would like to make a complaint you can reach an Officer at (780) 785-3411, there is a 24-Hour Answering Service available to contact or leave a message for an Officer.

No, the only animal that is picked-up by our Officers are dogs.

LSAC believes in the humanely treating animals and we are governed by many laws to do so. When a dog is picked up by our Officers the first thing they do for the animal when it comes into our care is thoroughly check the dog for any injuries, markings, tattoos, etc. If the animal is injured the Officers take the animal to the nearest vet to be assessed. If the animal is fine, it is scanned for a microchip with a handheld scanner that can read the registration number and phone number of the registry for the brand of chips. With this information and any tattoo information, all the local vets are contacted to see if they have any leads on the owners.

As per specific legislation, LSAC is bound to hold all dogs as follows:

NON-PUREBRED dogs for three (3) days

PUREBRED dogs for ten (10) days

Once a dog is picked-up by our Officers and they have been assessed, the animal is taken to a privately contracted facility (Dogs Paradise Resort www.pets368.com ) for the allotted legislated time. This is just a holding facility for the animals where they are treated with love, care and attention for the allotted legislated time. Please check out their website or Facebook page to see the facility for yourself. However, please note that Dogs Paradise Resort staff are unable to release any of the found animals without an Enforcement Officer from LSAC being involved, so please contact LSAC first at (780) 785- 3411.

If you are looking for your lost dog, contacting one of our Enforcement Officers at (780)785-3411 is the first step. They will be able to assist you in the process of getting your lost dog home. Dogs Paradise Resort are unable to release any of the found animals without an Enforcement Officer from LSAC being involved, so please contact an Officer.

Once the time has lapsed, and the owner has not come forward for the dog, the Officers will make arrangements for the animal(s) to be transported to WHARF – Whitecourt Homeless Animal Rescue Foundation here the dogs are kept and put up for adoption and re-homing.

When dogs are picked-up by our Officers, we try to communicate the information to the public as soon as possible on our Facebook page and our Website. When the dog(s) are no longer in our care, we take the posting down from both sites.
