Petition to Enforce Existing Vancouver Dog By-Laws
Even though only 15% of Vancouver residents own dogs, a 60% majority of Vancouverites have experienced or witnessed problems with off-leash dogs, and an overwhelming 82% of us would like animal control bylaws to be enforced.*
We, the undersigned, call upon the City of Vancouver to enforce the existing dog by-laws.
To facilitate this, we ask that special constable status be established for animal control officers so that they have the power and authority to do their job.
