Pets

The animal controller’s mandate is to capture stray dogs and to recover injured or dead animals in public places or on the road.

For any injured or dead animal on your property, please contact the animal controller. Please note that a fee is payable for this service.

In accordance with by-law no. 650-2014, a dog & cat license is mandatory within the Town of Hudson Limits. The cost of the license is $20 for a dog and $10 for a cat. Should the licence be lost, the guardian of the animal must obtain another licence. The cost of this replacement is $5.00.  A maximum of 3 dogs per household, and no maximum for cats.

Note that dog licenses expire on December 31 of each year. A new invoice will be sent automatically every year. If your dog dies or if you don’t have your dog anymore, you should advise the Town Hall at 450-458-5347.

The license application must indicate the family name, first name, domicile and telephone number of the owner/custodian, as well as information identifying the dog to be licensed: breed or type, colour and sex. If available, the tattoo number and the Canadian Kennel Club registration number should also be specified.

Inoculation

No license shall be issued without proof that the dog has been inoculated against rabies.

Roaming

It is forbidden to any owner or custodian of a dog in the Town of Hudson to allow the dog to roam in the streets or public places, as well as on private property without the consent of the owner or occupant of the property.

Dogs may go on all the pedestrian paths in the Town but must be leashed at all times.

Cleanliness

Owners/custodians must pick up dog feces in all public places and on any private property other than their own.

Dog run

So that your dog can burn off excess energy, the Town of Hudson provides residents with a dog run at 725 Main. This spacious exercise area is fenced-in, so that your dog can run off-leash.

It is strongly recommended to ensure that your dog has complete, up-to-date vaccination coverage and is properly protected against transmissible internal and external parasites.

Code of conduct in dog exercise areas

No dog may be in the designated area without an adult in attendance at all times

The owner/custodian may bring only two dogs at a time to the dog run or on trails

You’ve lost your pet.

Please contact the Town of Hudson at 450-458-5347 during office hours. You can also contact Animal Control at 450-510-1508 (open 24-7). If your lost animal has not been impounded, you can contact the Hudson Community Patrol at 514-219-5383, as it may be in their possession! (This is sometimes the case)

You’ve found an animal that has a medallion on its collar.

With the help of the list of dogs-cats of the current year, you will be able to connect it to its owner. By looking up the number on the medallion, you will be able to find the contact information of the lost animal’s owner.

 

You’ve found an animal that does not have a medallion.

If the animal does not have a medallion or its medallion is from a previous year, contact Animal Control or the Community Patrol.

Pound

The owner/custodian of an impounded dog or cat must collect their pet at animal control within eight (8) days of its capture and upon payment of registration fees and custody fees per day of detention. After this period, the animal may be placed up for adoption.
