I have never heard of anyone being fined or jailed because their cat or dog got out. And there is no way a ban would be enacted on them....exception being a few dog breeds which have earned the dubious distinction of being killers.
Actually if your dogs roam free and animal control pics them up you do have to pay a fine to get them back, happened to my old boss, twice (this was in vancouver). If your dog is caught with out a license you are fined as well. Some cities are enacting bylaws against free roaming/unlicensed cats as well.
