Saskatoon Resident Gains Committee Support for Pet Limit By-law Proposal

Saskatoon resident Kelsey Stroeder received support from the City Council’s Standing Policy Committee on Planning, Development and Community Services for her proposed amendment to the Animal Control By-law. Stroeder is proposing the City limit households to a maximum of ten cats and dogs, aiming to prevent hoarding and regulate animal breeding operations. Despite anticipating public opposition, she contends that a reasonable restriction can combat neglect and unsanitary conditions. The proposal will now be sent to administration for inclusion in the annual review of the Animal Control By-law.
