Our Bylaw Enforcement Officer, Special Constable Kelley Anne Hurley has been working with local agencies to ensure that the dog has an opportunity to be rehomed, if it is assessed as adoptable.  At present, the custody of the dog has been transferred to another agency, and is being cared for in a facility, assessed and will be adopted out as per the protocols of that facility.  The Region of Queens Municipality appreciates the support from the community in trying to locate the owners, the caring shown for the well being of the dog, and the supportive words the community has given to  Special Constable Hurley, for the efforts she has applied to ensure the dog is safe and has a good chance of a future.

The Region of Queens Municipality would like to remind the public that under no circumstances are unwanted pets to be abandoned or surrendered to the Region of Queens Municipality.  The Region of Queens Municipality has a dog pound to house lost or wandering pets on a short term, temporary basis, until their owners are located.  The Municipality is not equipped, trained or able to deal with unwanted animals, or able to facilitate an adoption of an animal with an unknown background.
