A new Animal Ownership By-Law is now in effect in the city.
We invite you to consult it in French by clicking here.
Domestic dogs must have a licence and the licence must be renewed each year at a cost of $30.
Simply complete the attached form, sign it and bring it to the City Hall at 50 rue Saint-Patrick to proceed with payment.
Payment can be made by cheque, cash or debit card.
Lost, found, captured
If it is wearing a city-issued tag, a found dog will be sent to the Québec City SPA located at 1130 avenue Galilée, Québec City.
To pick it up, please call 418 527-9104.
Please note that the City of Shannon does not offer any services for lost or found cats.
The City wishes to remind the citizens that the owners of animals captured in Shannon territory, which have been reported to the Société protectrice des animaux de Québec (SPA), will be billed for the cost of the SPA services plus a sum of 15 % as an administrative fee, to recover their animal.
To report a lost, found or captured dog, please contact the city at 418 844-3778 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
