If you take a Dog At Large home for safety, the matter unfortunately falls outside of Village bylaws as you have taken responsibility for the animal - if you cannot find the owner, your best recourse is to contact the BCSPCA in Nelson.
Dogs at large that have been captured and kenneled by the Animal Control Officer are removed from the local area until the bylaw enforcement matter is resolved and fines paid in full.
There is no Animal Control Regulation or Service in RDCK Electoral Area ‘D’, but this does not provide immunity from Village regulations. Dogs At Large that have wandered into town will be dealt with no differently if enforcement action is required.
The steps of enforcement action may vary but generally voluntary compliance with the bylaw is sought rather than enforcement action.
