In order to keep our city clean, the owner of the animal must immediately remove and clean up the animal’s fecal matter.
A domestic animal that causes damage to the property of others and is on private property without the consent of the owner of the property is prohibited by law.
Any domestic animal that is outside a dwelling unit or its outbuildings must be retained/restrained by a device (fastener, leash, fence, etc.). If the restraint is a leash, the leash must not exceed a length of two (2) metres.
Any vicious, dangerous or rabid animal that attacks or is trained to attack is prohibited. Any animal attempting to bite or cause bodily injury to a person or to another domestic animal by biting or scratching, without provocation, is considered dangerous.
In order to avoid the euthanasia of unidentified stray cats, residents are required to obtain a license for their cat at a cost of $25, valid for a period of two years. Please note that a dog license is also mandatory and must be renewed before May 31 of each year. It is valid from February 1 of the year in which it is issued to January 31 of the following year.
When an animal wears a license indicating the owner’s phone number or address, the animal controller can easily and quickly contact the owner of such an animal found on a public thoroughfare and return it to its owner. Conversely, an unidentified cat or dog will be kept for up to seven (7) days for animals having a license, and three days (3) for unlicensed animals. After this period of time they will be euthanized or put up for adoption as described in the by-law.
To obtain a license or for any other service, residents of Mont-Tremblant should contact Mr. Robert Rochon at 819-425-0630.

The animal controller may capture, and keep at the pound, any stray domestic animal. He may also euthanize any domestic animal, without a muzzle, that he considers to be dangerous.
