Animal Services and the Parks Division are pleased to announce the appointment of Ashley Doumolin as Coordinator for the Pets in the Park summer program, currently underway.  Throughout the summer, Ashley will be visiting various city parks and public events talking to pet owners about responsible pet ownership including leash requirements, cleaning up after pets and pet licensing.  She will present "Responsible Pet Owner" awards to pet owners who are seen complying with City by-laws.  The goal of the program is to promote responsible pet ownership in Thunder Bay so that both pet owners and non-pet owners can enjoy a safe and healthy community.
