Pet licensing brings pets home and helps to fund some shelter programs

Pet licensing brings pets home and helps to fund some shelter programs

 Pet licenses are more than just a tag around pet’s neck, they are their ticket home if they are lost. Fees collected from licenses help many of the other animals who come into the shelter. Every week Animal Services takes in an average of 70 stray pets and 17 of those are returned to their owners the same day through the drive home program. In fact because of pet licensing, Calgary has the highest return to owner and lowest euthanization rates in North America. Beyond reuniting pets with their owners, licences help to fund emergency vet care for stray dogs and cats, no cost spay/neuter programs for eligible Calgarians and so much more. Visit Calgary.ca to learn more about how licensing can benefit you and your fur family.

Snowfall Tree Debris Management

Fallen Tree Branches from Heavy SnowSnowfall Tree Debris Management

Recent snowfall has caused damage to many trees throughout the city, leaving tree debris on both private property and City property.

All three City landfills – Spyhill, Shepard and East Calgary – are accepting tree debris from the snowstorm at no charge until further notice. Customers arriving at the scalehouse should identify that they are bringing tree debris and must not mix the debris with any other waste material for it to be accepted free of charge.

Alternatively, tree debris can be cut into 4-foot pieces in length and stacked beside waste and recycling carts to be picked up with regular collection or at a later date, depending on our resources.

To help keep regular garbage and recycling pickup on schedule, and to avoid damaging City equipment, we ask that Calgarians do not put tree debris in their blue, black or green carts.

Calgarians may notice a disruption with City services such as power outages in City facilities and delayed garbage and recycling collection due to tree debris blocking back lanes. We thank Calgarians for their patience as City crews work to manage all effects of the recent snowfall.

Please be safe as many drooping tree limbs still pose a safety threat. We continue to work on a debris management plan and will communicate with Calgarians later today how we will be proceeding. At this time, we are still focused on emergency response to fallen tree debris on roads and impacts from power outages throughout the city. Safety is our current priority.
