Animal Control

Upon moving to the Township or obtaining a new dog, it is your responsibility to register your dog with Township staff as soon as possible. Dog tag invoices are mailed out in March of each year and are due by May 1st. Tags range from $20 to $30 depending whether the dog is spayed or neutered. A late fee of $15 per tag will apply after the deadline, and if left unpaid, added to your final tax bill at an additional cost of $10. Animal control services are provided through a contract with an independent service provider who acts as the Township’s Animal Control Officer. Evret Damchuk, is the current Animal Control Officer and may be reached at 519-844-2417. The Animal Control Officer is responsible for enforcement of the Animal Control By-Law (By-Law No. 46 of 2013).

The primary purpose of the Animal Control By-Law is to prevent dogs running at large in the Township. All residents are required to control their dogs and ensure they do not leave their property unless they are on a leash under the control of a person. Owners of dogs found running at large can face a fine of $150. Failure to remove your dog waste or failure to license your dog can also receive the same fine. Rabies Clinics are held annually in April. All cats and dogs 3 months and older, must be vaccinated.
