The City of Kenora is a pet-friendly community. If your dog needs open space to play in, visit our leash-free areas within the city.
Keeping your dog on-leash respects all visitors to our parks and trails and keeps everyone safe and happy.
The City of Kenora provides animal services for any stray dogs or cats found until safe return to the owner. If you have found a stray animal, please contact a By-law Enforcement Officer at 467-2166, with the following information:
your name, address, phone
where you found the animal
tag numbers, collars or tattoos (if any)
breed of animal

The City of Kenora By-law to Regulate the Keeping of Animals sets out the licensing regulations and fees for the ownership of domestic dogs and cats in the City.
If a dog is picked up by a By-law Enforcement Officer and is wearing a City of Kenora dog tag, it will be given a free ride home. In situations where the Officer attempts to deliver a dog home and the owner is not home, notification will be left and the dog will be brought to the pound. Pound fees are applicable to all impounded animals. The free ride home incentive will not apply to repeat offenders.
Check “Lost and Found” in the classifieds of The Daily Miner and News. Place an ad for a lost pet — this ad space is generally offered free of charge as a community service. Local radio stations have lost or found pet announcements daily.
