The Town of Tofield is often asked for more information on certain Animal Bylaws. We have made these available in PDF form for Public Viewing:
- Bylaw 1265-1269 – Animal Control
- Bylaw 1267 – Domestric & Wild Animal Control Bylaw
- Penalties – Animal
We definitely understand that stray cats (or cats at large) can be overwhelming to deal with. We refer situations like this to Cat Sheltering Agencies (also known as cat rescues). There are many (over 50) sheltering agencies for cats all over Alberta. If a very friendly cat has shown up at your property, we suggest taking the cat into a vet office so they can scan it for a microchip.
Also, you can look on line for safe alternatives for deterring cats from your property. Here’s a website with some helpful tips: https://www.thespruce.com/cat-repellents-to-keep-cats-out-of-your-yard-2132573.
