For a number of years, Prairie By-Law Enforcement has been contracted to enforce all municipal by-laws as well as provide animal control services. You can call 204-757-2083 to report any animal control issues and your complaint will be addressed by their by-law enforcement officer.
Part of the service and enforcement that Council would like residents to know is that if your animal is impounded, you will not be able to pick up your animal until all fines, boarding fees and costs have been paid. The animals will be boarded at the Manitoba Animal Hospital on Main Street in Winnipeg, if impounded. Under the current by-law, if a dog is impounded, we must currently only keep the dog for 3 days, or 5 days, depending on whether the infraction occurs on a weekend. If not claimed within this period, the Manitoba Animal Hospital will dispose of the animal. Please be sure that your dog is licensed so that if your dog is impounded, they will know who to contact.
The Animal Control By-Law regulates such things as animals running at large, ensuring dogs are properly licensed, impoundment of animals, collecting of impoundment fees, ensuring proper number of animals are allowed on properties and that kennel permits are properly applied for, apprehending dangerous animals and ensuring there are no restricted animals in the municipality without a proper permit.
More information can be obtained by reviewing the Animal Control By-Law. This by-law also lists costs involved for fines, impoundments and licenses along with other pertinent information involving animals within the municipality.
Every dog over the age of 4 months is required to have a dog license. Licenses can be obtained from the Municipal Office in Clandeboye. We require the owner's name, civic address and phone number, breed of dog, color of dog, rabies certificate number and dog's name. The licenses are to be re-newed on an annual basis. If you are unable to come to the Municipal Office, you can mail a cheque payable to R.M. of St. Andrews for the appropriate amount (listed below) and we will mail you out your dog tag(s).

Dog License Fees are as Follows:
- $12.00/year spayed/neutered
- $40.00/year not spayed/not neutered
It is also very important that dogs and cats be vaccinated as there are different viruses that could make a pet sick if they are ever impounded.
