Lacombe City Council recently passed a resolution to have Klassic Kennels provide animal control services for the City.

The contract included Klassic Kennels providing impoundment for dogs and cats, as well as after-hours pick-ups and patrols when necessary.

“The City looks forward to working with Klassic Kennels over the next three years. We are confident that Klassic Kennels will continue to exceed the level of service that residents have come to expect,” said Acting Corporate Services Director Diane Piche.

“We would like to thank Central Animal Services for their commitment to the City over the past few years.”

The agreement began on Dec. 1st of this year and will continue until Nov. 30th, 2020.

The three-year contract is for $75,600, which is based on an average of five impounds per month. This equals to a yearly cost of $25,200.

Residents can report a missing cat or dog by calling Klassic Kennels at 403-340-0128. That number can be accessed after hours, weekends and statutory holidays.

Residents are encouraged to call Enforcement Services at 403-782-1269 during regular business hours.
