Lost your Pet?

  1. If an animal is turned in or found running at large, a member of our staff will be notified and the pet will be brought to the pound until it has been claimed.
  2. If the animal has a Pet Tag visible on their collar, the owner will be contacted directly.
  3. If the owner cannot be reached or there are no tags, then photos and information about the pet (tags/no tags, location found, colour, sexe & age) will be posted on the Town of Shaunavon Facebook Page. If you have lost your pet, please look through the posts to see if it has been turned in.
  4. If you have identified your lost pet displayed on our Facebook, please call 306-297-2605 or visit the Town Office and our office staff will assist you with further steps to reclaiming your lost pet.


  1. Phone the Town Office (306) 297-2605, a member of our staff will be available during office hours Monday to Friday 8am-4pm.
  2. Provide a description of the animal, the location you spotted it.
  3. A member of our staff will be notified and will take the animal to the “pound” (the Shaunavon Animal Clinic). *Please note that if a dog at large is showing DANGEROUS behaviours, then contact the local RCMP detachment at 297-5550, to allow officers to control the dog in a safe manner. See the Animal Control Bylaw 2023-07 for a definition of “Dangerous Dog”.

All dog and cat owners should obey the Town of Shaunavon Bylaw for Licensing, Regulating and Controlling Cats and Dogs.

Tips to protect your pets:

  • Fence your yard and check it regularly for escape routes. For the safety of both your pet and visitors (wanted or unwanted), keep yard gates locked.
  • Leash your pets at all times and don’t allow them to roam.
  • Keep a collar on your pet that has an ID and CURRENT tags.
  • Transport your pet in a carrier. Never take your pet to the Vet or anywhere unless it is secured.
  • Get some good photos of your pet.
  • Both males and females will be less likely to wander if they are spayed or neutered. An added benefit is that they will live a longer, happier, healthier life.
