Public Service Announcement

Post Date:07/25/2018

Whitehorse – The Bylaw Services Department reminds citizens to take precautions due to the issuance of a heat warning for Whitehorse by Environment Canada.

  • Check on animals frequently to ensure that they are not suffering from the heat.
  • Make sure they have plenty of cool water.
  • Do not leave pets in vehicles.

If you see an animal in distress in a parked vehicle, please note the license plate, vehicle colour, make and model and ask nearby businesses to find the owner to return to their vehicle immediately. If the owner cannot be located, call the City trouble line at 667-2111.
