Stray Dogs

Stray dogs are captured by Animal Protection Officers and taken to the Regina Humane Society.

If your dog is licensed, the Humane Society will contact you within 24 hours to tell you that they have picked up your pet. If your dog is unlicensed, you can call the Humane Society and provide them with a description of your pet in case it is picked up.


To retrieve your dog, you must pay the following:

  • $35 impoundment fee (+ $15/day after 3 days)
  • between $100 and $300 fine for running at large
  • between $150 and $350 fine if unlicensed
    • If your dog does not have a licence, you will also have to pay for it to be licensed (Licence fees are $25 if sterilized or $100 if not sterilized)


Dogs not claimed within 3 days may be put up for adoption or humanely euthanized.
