Following the new provincial regulation concerning dogs, which recently came into force, all dog owners in Rosemère must register their dog(s) from now on and obtain the regulatory ID tag from the SPCA Lanaudière Basses-Laurentides. However, guide dogs are exempt from this new regulation.
This ID tag must be purchased directly online on the SPCA Lanaudière Basses-Laurentides website, at a cost of $25/year. The entire $25 will go to this organization in order to pursue its mission, which is fundamentally aimed at the well-being of pets. These funds will be invested in information and education efforts aimed at residents in order to foster greater knowledge of—and more respect for—animals.
The RIPTB in charge of the file
For the municipalities of Boisbriand, Lorraine, Rosemère and Sainte-Thérèse, the Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville (RIPTB) is in charge of enforcing this new regulation. The RIPTB will raise the awareness of residents under its jurisdiction of the need to register their dogs and obtain the regulatory ID tag as soon as possible. If residents have any questions, they can call 450 435-2421, ext. 3500.
