Lloydminster city council renews animal pound agreement with SPCA

The City of Lloydminster has renewed their agreement with the SPCA.

The city announced that they will be giving the organization $50,000 this year to continue to act as the city’s animal pound, the same amount that they were given last year.

“What we based it on this time around is $125 per animal,” said Councillor Larry Sauer. “That had to be spelled out a little more because, if you recall, [through] the animal bylaw, now cats [are] involved, so there could be substantially more coming in from our bylaw officers to the SPCA. Basically it breaks it up into numbers, that number being 400, that would take up the $125 per animal, and then, going beyond that, that $125 per animal will be continued if there is more than that this year.”

Sauer also says that the Municipal Government Act says that all cities must have a pound, and that he feels paying the SPCA is the most cost-effective way of fulfilling their obligation.
