Humane Cat Traps

Humane cat trapping is ONLY permitted in the Town of Didsbury between the months of May and October. If you own your own cat trap, we ask that you please refrain from using them outside of those months. If you are experiencing an issue with an animal outside of May-October, please call Didsbury Animal Control at 403-335-7727.

To lease a cat trap, fill out the Humane Cat Trap Rental Agreement form and return via email to peaceofficer@didsbury.ca or in person at the Town of Didsbury Administration Office located at 1606 14th Street, Didsbury. 

Residents who lease the traps MUST abide by the Town of Didsbury Policy #2006 Trapping of Cats. A $100.00 deposit is required payable by cheque or by cash and will be returned once the trap is returned to the Town in good working condition.

Cat traps are typically leased out on a regular basis so there is no guarantee of obtaining a trap the same day you request one. If a trap is not available your name will be put on a waiting list. When a trap becomes available you will be contacted by the Animal Control Officer. As per the Town of Didsbury Cat Trapping Policy #2006, Section #7, if the resident owns their own cat trap and catches a cat it is their responsibility to transport the cat for impound at their own expense.
