Animal Control

Animal Control

The Animal Control Department helps to ensure that stray/abandoned/lost/injured animals are safely housed, fed, and cared for until such time as they are claimed or adopted. They also enforce the City Animal Control Bylaws, including but not limited to licensing, running at large, and barking.

The department also provides information and education to the public regarding responsible animal ownership. In addition, they run a fully functioning animal shelter and operate a crematorium to safely and environmentally responsibly handle deceased animals.

The department is led by the Animal Control Officer who is supported by animal shelter staff.
