The Village de Memramcook’s council knows how important it is to safeguard the security of its residents and to contribute to bettering their quality of life. The council is asking for your help in accomplishing this. It is asking that you manage your dogs so that our neighborhoods are safe and enjoyable.
All dog owners must be respectful of their surroundings and must ensure that their dog or dogs are under control at all times.
Vaccination and dog licensesWhat is rabies? Rabies is a viral illness that attacks the nervous system. Untreated, it can be fatal both to animals and to humans.
Prevention and awareness are the two best ways to beat rabies. We must take all the necessary precautions to safeguard our community and our pets from this virus. It’s rather easy: it’s a rabies vaccination.
Each and every owner must license their dog or dogs with the municipality by March 31st of each year. A valid rabies vaccination certificate must be provided before a license can be bought. If you have yet to buy your dog license for the current January 1st to December 31st period, you may contact the animal control officer, Anne Robichaud,at 863-4411 or by visiting the municipal office building (540 Centrale Street) during business hours from 8:30 to noon and from 1 to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday. The main goal of dog licenses is to make sure that all dogs in the Village de Memramcook are vaccinated against rabies. Also, the tag hung on the dog’s collar will help us find a dog’s owner if it is lost or roaming the streets.
