A new animal care and control by-law will comes into effect tomorrow meaning there will be no limit on the number of dogs and cats someone can own.

Under the new regulations pet owners can keep as many spayed or neutered dogs and cats, there will also be new licensing options where an owner can get a one year, three year or lifetime dog and cat licence.

Houses with unaltered pets are limited to two licensed dogs and two cats.

There will also be tougher penalties if an investigation finds a vicious dog.
