Prescott endorses leash laws, poop and scoop for cats; pet poisoning warnings in Gananoque

Article content

PRESCOTT – Town cat owners will have to license their pets and have them on a leash when off their property under a new bylaw tentatively approved by town council this week.

Essentially, the new animal-control bylaw, which is scheduled for final approval in two weeks, treats cats the same as dogs, including poop-and-scoop rules.

Fines, which haven’t been raised in years, would be doubled in the new law.

The fine for a cat or dog that runs at large is $110, or double the existing $55 fine for a dog.

That free-running dog or cat owner also could be fined $110 if the pet is not licensed, or $110 if it is not wearing its tag.

And the leash law apparently would apply to the unofficial dog run on the Kriska property and other areas where owners now let their dogs run free. Prescott doesn’t have a dog run but council members have it on their wish list of capital projects.

A dog or cat licence would cost $20 for the first year to cover the cost of the tag and $18 annually thereafter.
