We are very excited to participate in the 2017 Calgary Pet-A-Palooza

Ways to help Montreal dog owners



September 26th 2016 is fast approaching. This will be the date in which the council will vote on a bylaw that targets:

Staffordshire Bull Terrier,
American Staffordshire Terrier, and
American Pit Bull Terrier

And any dog(s) having “several morphological characteristics” of mixes of dogs with one of 3 breeds.

Should this law pass, dogs that fit the above descriptions will not be transferable to another owner, and will not be able to be adopted out. This includes dogs in shelters.

Should you not comply and meet the demands of this law and not obtain the special permit to have your dog, you risk your dog being seized and killed.

English Version of bylaw can be seen here: http://www.chicobandido.com/public/montreal_animal_bylaw_en.pdf
